WHEN: Tuesday, July 17th & August 21, 6:30 – 8 PM

ADMISSION: This reading is free and open to the public.

A poetry reading celebrating Newark native poets, followed by a community open mic. Bring your poems if you'd like to share!

Cool off with an evening of poems in Newark's beautiful green space. You may be familiar with our Lunchtime Poems reading series in Military Park from previous summers, and this year we're kicking off our first evening reading series in the park!

Wondering how to get to Military Park? Take a look at our Festival Transportation page, which will take you to Newark's Downtown Arts District. Military Park is located directly across from the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC).

Looking to make a day of it? Why not spend the day at the Newark Museum, or the New Jersey Historical Society?

Grab a snack or dinner at nearby Dodge staff favorites, O'LaLa Empanadas, The Green Chicpea or Burger Walla, or grab something from Whole Foods Newark right off the park. We also love to get a coffee at Black Swan Espresso!
