On a warm summer afternoon and evening, what could be better than to spend time at the Second Annual SummerFest? The Newark Chamber of Commerce is hosting the free celebration of music and microbrews on July 10th and 11th.
SummerFest's wide variety of breweries will provide guests with the ability to taste test the best brews of the area. Here is a chance to discover some new favorites while listening to music of the past and present. Mugs with tokens will be on sale so guests can visit microbrew booths at their leisure.
There will be free live music both days. The outdoor main stage will feature: the Diehards with Susan Harlow; Zydeco On Our Mind; Best Kept Secret; Highway 4 with Jim Ashley; Phil Berkowitz Band; Rock 'n Roll Time Machine featuring band members of California Dreamin' and many other great talents.
The festival will host a car show with a grand prize of $500 cash for the People's Choice Award and awards for: best restoration, wildest custom, and under construction. Come check out some classic hot rods or enter your own for a chance to win the grand prize. In addition, arts and crafts, food and local commercial vendors will be on hand to offer unique items. A kid's park will keep young visitors busy. There will be something for everyone!
