On Broadway Between Bloomfield Place & Broad Street
Sunday, August 18 2019
12:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Held in the Heart of Newark’s Lower Broadway neighborhood, Festival de la Familia celebrates Newark’s vibrant diversity and the strength of community with a special Back to School theme called “Project Backpack.” The free festival will take place from 12pm-5pm on Broadway between Bloomfield Place & Broad Street in Newark, NJ.
Initiated in 2018, Project Backpack is La Casa de Don Pedro’s campaign to support Newark’s children as they get ready for school. We are seeking your help to gather donations of 500 backpacks and school supplies to distribute to Newark children at the Festival de la Familia. With your donation, you’ll help energize some of Newark’s most vulnerable children, getting them prepared and excited to return to school.
