Enjoy food and craft vendors as well as fun rides for the kids at this family-friendly event. The festival is co-sponsored by the African American Caribbean Cultural Organization of Essex County and Essex County Parks & Recreation as part of the “Summer Music 2022 Live Free Concert Series.” Enter the free Saturday festival at the park entrance located at Meeker Ave & Empire St. in Newark, NJ.
