Community Day

Community Day

Due to COVID-19, Community Day 2020 has been canceled for the safety of our participants, vendors, spectators and staff. We are currently working on creating events to bring to the Newark Community throughout the fall. Look for additional information on our Facebook page and website.

The City of Newark's Parks and Recreation Department, in cooperation with the University of Delaware and the Christina School District, present the area's premier fall festival. This exciting event features fun for the entire family.

Community Day Event Map

The Green provides the perfect outdoor venue for local musicians and demonstration groups. A food court will have a variety of foods. Fine art and homemade craft vendors will be displaying and selling their creations. 
The children's area is always a big hit with scarecrow making and more. Community information booths and activities are supplied by a variety of local businesses and organizations.
On Main Street, enjoy dining and retail specials at Main Street merchants.
Please remember, pets are not comfortable in the heat and crowds of large events, so for their safety and the safety of those attending the event, please leave your pets at home.
