The 11th annual Downtown Newark Food and Brew Festival will be held from 2-9 p.m., Saturday, July 26.

In addition to DelDOT, the Newark Bike Project and WILMAPCO will also be present to help the Newark Bicycle Committee ensure the success of this event as a means of drawing attention to the importance of bicycling as transportation, recreation, and a source of economic development in this community.

The Newark Bicycle Committee is a partnership of interested cyclists and agencies working to improve bicycling in the community.
