We know that when you’re planning a trip to the Festival, there are a lot of logistics to keep in mind and things to know! We always want to keep you up to date with the exciting news and opportunities, so here are some of the latest resources and announcements we have made about #DPF18, all in one place:

  • Wondering which day your favorite poet will be at the Festival? Check out our brand new Poet Calendar, which indicates which days each poet will be performing in Downtown Newark.
  • Have you taken a look at the full Festival Lineup? You can find links about each individual poet when you click on their names for more information, and we will have biographic information up on our website very soon! We hope you’re as excited about this lineup as we are!
  • Along the lines of getting to know our poets, be sure to visit our Ask a Poet blog series! It’s a great way to get acquainted with some of the poets you will see at the Festival!
  • Interested in Teacher Day, Thursday, October 18th? It’s not too late to register for this fun day of poetry designed for educators. Pre-registered teachers can attend at no charge! Don’t miss it!
  • A great way to keep up on Festival announcements is by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! We are providing new announcements and information all the time, and we love to hear from you.
  • Do you have your tickets yet? Weekend and Four-Day Passes are on sale now! We have discounts for teachers, students, Newark-residents, seniors and college students.
  • We’ve got special hotel rates for you, but book soon! Blocks are filling up fast.
  • If you’re coming from NYC or NJ, get your $10.50 round-trip NJ TRANSIT tickets to Newark Penn, from any NJ TRANSIT station or NY Penn.
  • Taking a car to the Festival? Get $5 off of LYFT rides with the code NJPAC, or drive yourself and get discounted parking rates right near NJPAC for single-day parking when you buy in advance. (Weekend & Four-Day parking passes coming soon!)
