Community Day Logo

Hundreds of vendors will be on hand as residents and visitors stroll the University of Delaware Green for the 47th annual Community Day this Sunday, September 16, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. The event is free to attend and features entertainment and fun for the whole family. 

"This event has become a long-standing tradition in Newark and we're looking forward to bringing the community together once again this year," said acting City Manager Tom Coleman. 
Local businesses and non-profit organizations will gather on the Green to highlight their organization and engage the public with information about their mission, activities, volunteer opportunities, and more. Fine artists, crafters, and retail businesses will be selling their creations and wares throughout the day. As always, food vendors will offer a wide variety of food options for festival goers on Delaware Avenue. The children's area will feature games and activities at a pint-sized price in addition to the popular scarecrow making.
