Community Day: Ballantine Funfair

November 18, noon5 pm.

Take a step back in time and experience a Vintage Funfair. In honor of the re-opening of The Ballantine House,  celebrate like the Ballantines might have. Enjoy carnival games, fun fair foods, art making, special demonstrations, and more!

Built in 1885, The Ballantine House reveals many unseen stories of the skilled craftspeople who built the home, those who kept it running, and the Ballantine family who lived here. Contemporary art, historical objects, and new interactive experiences highlight the rich history and diversity of Newark’s many communities.

Food and drinks are available for purchase.

The event will move indoors in case of inclement weather. Advanced registration required.
