The free event will feature vendors, live music, art activities, demonstrations, food trucks and a beer garden. In addition, tours of the park and its history will take place throughout the day.
“The Passaic County Board of County Commissioners is proud to support Passaic County’s annual Art in the Park event,” said Commissioner Director Pat Lepore.
“My colleagues and I have prioritized and invested in beautifying our county parks over the last two decades, and this event is a great way for residents to checkout everything our beautiful county parks have to offer whilst enjoying art, activities, live music and food.”
Designed by the Olmsted Brothers firm, Goffle Brook Park is a 103-acre park featuring a brook, picnic areas, playgrounds, a dog park, fitness equipment and multiple athletic fields.
It also is home to the Passaic County Arts Center at the John W. Rea House. The Arts Center will be open during Art in the Park with these exhibits: “Breathe” by Soo Kim, “Everything’s Fine” by Gwenn Seemel, “Calling Me Home” by Michael Wolf, and “New Works,” by Hawthorne residents Elaine Lorenz and Howard Nathenson.
