A New Night Downtown


6/10/17 3 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Kick-off summer at Newark's premier street festival, hosted by the Downtown Newark Partnership. E. Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic as more than 50 businesses and organizations showcase the best they have to offer and thousands of people participate in A New Night Downtown.

The event is free to attend and fun for the whole family. The City of Newark Parks and Recreation Department will host a designated children's section with games, prizes and inflatables. The Newark Arts Alliance will host "Art on the Lawn," featuring more than a dozen local artists displaying their arts, crafts and jewelry for sale on the Academy Building Lawn. Attendees can also play tennis with Mayor Sierer on Academy Street from 4-6 p.m.



All municipal lots will be accessible and parking will be free. Some University of Delaware lots will also be open for parking. Please see the Parking Map for more details HERE.
