TRENTON, N.J. – Mayor Reed Gusciora, Trenton public safety officials, and Art All Night organizers announced safety procedures and logistical changes on Wednesday to Art All Night 2019, taking place Saturday and Sunday, June 15-16.
The annual celebration of art and culture will begin Saturday at 3 p.m. with entry closing at midnight. This year, a curfew will go into effect beginning at 1 a.m. on Sunday, and the event will re-open to the public at 7 a.m. Sunday, ending at 3 p.m.
“We believe this is a practical approach to protecting the residents and visitors of Trenton,” said Gusciora. “Artworks Trenton has been a great partner with the City by suggesting the overnight closure. We want to keep this tradition alive, and we want Trenton to continue to grow as an arts community, but safety is paramount.”
The event will include more than 30 bands performing on two stages, demonstrations, activities for kids, food trucks, a beer garden, and, of course, art. More than 600 pieces of art have been submitted already. You can submit your piece to Art All Night here until midnight on Thursday.
Two visitor entrances with security checkpoints will be set up, one on Dye Street and one on Clinton Avenue. No weapons or outside food and beverages will be permitted. Additionally, street closures will include South Clinton Avenue, Dye Street, Haggarty Alley, Gennessee Street, and Fraudenmacher Alley (see map below for details).
