Porchfest "lights up" the Hilton Section of Maplewood on September 2nd

Imagine strolling the streets of Maplewood and stopping at one porch, then another, and then another to enjoy music and entertainment all day long. That’s Porchfest! Porchfest is held exclusively in Maplewood's Hilton neighborhood. This section of town is still very affordable as compared to other sections of Maplewood, but prices are rising faster here than they are in the town as a whole, making these homes potentially great investments.

Where can you get a 3/4 bedroom home with new designer kitchen and baths, with a commute to NYC that averages between 35-45 minutes with good schools, a diverse community--lifestyle-wise, income-wise, religion-wise, etc.--for under $450,000? Look no further than this home at 29 Hughes that will be hosting an Open House today from 2-4PM. Meet local realtor, Mr Brooklyn West himself: Mark Slade.

Enjoy this fun and free event every year on Labor Day Sunday, rain date Monday, in the Hilton neighborhood, from 1-5pm. The event kicks off at noon in front of the Community Center at DeHart Park with music, balloons, a fundraiser bake sale, and a rehearsal for our “honk parade,” where everyone in the family is welcome to make music and march!

New: Enjoy a free jitney service running on Rutgers St./Field Rd. from Hilton Ave. to Porter Rd. That means a little less walking and a lot more music and entertainment. We hope you’ll be there!

Stop by Dehart Park or participating porches to get a printed event schedule & map.

Kick Off Event:

Noon at DeHart Park

Honk Parade:

12:45pm from DeHart Park

Live Music & Entertainment:

1-5pm on porches all around Hilton

Rain Date:

Monday, September 3

A picturesque town in Essex County, Maplewood is located on the East Branch of the Rahway River. Originally consisting of farms, mills and orchards, Maplewood is now a great mix of residential and commercial areas, culminating in the jewel of a downtown village and coming together to create a charming, tight-knit and diversified community. Maplewood has predominantly Colonial and Tudor style homes with sprawling porches and ample greenery, but you can also find some Victorians and a range of more modern style construction on its beautiful tree lined streets.
Maplewood is a diverse town with 6 elementary schools and prominent municipal building designed by famous architects, Guilbert and Betelle. In the center of town, famed landscape architects, the Olmstead Brothers, created the breathtaking Memorial Park; not to be overlooked is Ricalton Square, nestled between the train station and the downtown shopping; this area is frequently used for events including a Halloween Parade with hayrides and petting zoos, as well as featuring replica homes during the Winter Holiday Season. The town offers many activities to its residents from camps in the summer, arts and crafts classes, a public pool (with 4 pools ranging from a “baby” pool to toddler pool to large lap pool and a diving tank) and a farmers market when in season. There is even an annual musicalpalooza--Maplewoodstock—featuring a variety of bands and musical styles, showcasing local and national bands with booths for local businesses to set up.

The Village, also known as Maplewood Center, is a quaint, downtown shopping district with everything from restaurants with foods from all over the world, bakeries, dance studios, gyms, bookstores, a movie theater and bookstores. With its large variety of cuisines to choose from, Maplewood recently started a yearly town-wide Restaurant Week with over 30 eateries participating.

Easily accessible by its throughways and the New Jersey Transit, it's no surprise Maplewood has been ranked several times as one of the most desirable places to live in America by a number of surveys.
