SHAKESPEARE/POE Directions & Parking
Newark Arts Alliance
The Newark Arts Alliance is conveniently located in the Market East Plaza (in the same shopping center as Newark Natural Foods Co-Op) on Main Street.
Soon after Rt 273/Ogletown Rd becomes E. Main Street, turn right at the intersection of Main Street and Tyre Ave (Fulton Bank will be on your left, Mojo Main will be on your right). The Newark Arts Alliance is straight ahead behind Gloss Salon. Click here for a map of the location.
There is plenty of free off-street parking available in the Plaza.
Read House & Gardens
For driving directions to the Read House, click here.
There is some street parking available immediately in front of the Read House on The Strand. There is additional parking behind the Read House on Market Street/2nd Street. If you park on Market Street/2nd Street, you can enter through the Group Visit entrance and walk through the gardens to reach the house.
For driving directions to Rockwood, click here.
There is plenty of parking available at Rockwood. For Shakespeare/Poe, we are directing patrons to a different parking area than they use when coming to the Summer Festival.
The closest spots are located by the Museum.
Enter into Rockwood Park and follow the “DSF Audience Drop-Off” signs through the first parking lot, turning left, and then right at the top of the hill before curving around the Carriage House. A DSF Volunteer will direct you to a parking space. If those parking spaces are full, a Volunteer will direct you to the Carriage House lot.
