Nice to meet you!
We’re NJPAC, the anchor cultural institution for the city of Newark and the state of New Jersey.
As a nonprofit arts organization, we change lives every day. We delight audiences with world-class performances, nurture students through our comprehensive education program, and engage our local community with free events and festivals across the city.
We’re also pushing the boundaries of what an arts center can do. We’re proud to prioritize inclusion in every aspect of our mission, resulting in the most diverse audiences and artist lineups in the country. We’ve created and toured our own original productions that extend our reach to new communities. And we’re driving the charge to reimagine and revitalize our downtown neighborhood.
Whoever you are, and wherever you’re from, you’ll find a creative home here at NJPAC.

in our community
We like to say that we’re more than a venue—we’re a community. We’re one of the few performing arts centers in the country with an entire department dedicated to reaching out, building connections and just plain having fun with our neighbors. Come say hello!
Every performer who steps onto the NJPAC stage has one thing in common: arts education made a difference in their lives. That’s why we’re proud to be one of the largest arts education providers in America.
