The City of Newark’s Parks and Recreation Department, in cooperation with University of Delaware, Christina School District, and the Downtown Newark Partnership announce the City’s annual fall festival, Community Day, on Sunday, September 15, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. This family-friendly event takes place on the University of Delaware Green, which hosts almost 300 vendors and several stages for music and performances.
The day offers the usual fair food favorites, fine art and homemade crafts on display and for sale, and a children’s area where kids can play games and build their own scarecrows for the fall. Competitive creative types can put their talent to the test in the Goodwill Trash to Treasure contest where entrants take an old item they have found around their house or at a Goodwill store and use their creativity to turn it into something new and useful. A “before photo” is required to enter the contest.
Community information booths and activities are supplied by a variety of local businesses and organizations. Downtown businesses and restaurants will offer dining and retail specials throughout the day. Coupons for downtown businesses can be found at the Downtown Newark Partnership booth.
Please remember that pets are not comfortable in the heat, noise, and crowds of large events, so for their safety and the safety of those attending the event, please leave your pets at home.
In case of inclement weather, Main Street merchant and dining specials will remain in effect. All other activities will be postponed until Sunday, September 22. For weather related cancellations, please call (302) 366-7147.
