11th Annual Festival de la Familia

August 25, 2018, 12pm-5pm

On Broadway, Between Bloomfield Place and Broad Street

Held in the heart of Newark’s Lower Broadway Community, La Casa de Don Pedro’s 11th annual Festival de la Familia celebrated Newark’s vibrant diversity and the strength of the community. Festival de la Familia was a free, family-friendly cultural and musical street fair that paid tribute to Newark’s rich Hispanic heritage, diversity and, unity with a special back to school theme.

La Casa de Don Pedro launched “Project Backpack.” “Project Backpack” was La Casa de Don Pedro’s campaign seeking help to gather donations of 500 backpacks and school supplies to be distributed to Newark children at our upcoming 11th Annual Festival de la Familia on August 25th, 2018.  For pictures from the 11th Annual Festival de la Familia click here.
