LINCOLN PARK MUSIC FESTIVAL WILL RETURN TO NEWARK FOR THE 12TH TIME THIS UPCOMING WEEKEND
Published July 24, 2017 | Brick City Live
The annual Lincoln Park Music Festival will return to Newark for the twelfth time when it stages three days of concerts this upcoming weekend, from July 28 through the 30th.
The weekend’s general outlines will be familiar to anyone who has attended the festival in the past: Friday night will feature jazz, R&B and gospel, Saturday will feature a full day of house music, and the festival will close out with hip-hop performances on Sunday.
The festival will also feature additional activities, including skateboard, golf and basketball clinics, storytelling and other children-, teen- and family-oriented activities. It will also include a healthy lifestyle pavilion. In the past, the pavilion has offered free health screenings, massages, yoga and other health-centered activities services.
Cece Peniston will be among the performers at this year’s Lincoln Park Music Festival, July 28 – 30.
Food, art, clothing, accessories and informational vendors will also be on hand.
Lincoln Park Music Festival started a dozen years ago as an act of creative placemaking to help revitalize Newark’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, which circumscribes Lincoln Park near the south end of Broad Street. Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District says the festival attracts about 50,000 visitors each year.
Lincoln Park Music Festival has already announced some of its house music lineup for Saturday, which will include Cece Peniston, Joe Claussell and Dawn Tallman.
