About Culture Crawl

The next Culture Crawl will take place on:

September 21, 2019

RAIN OR SHINE

Culture Crawl is a one day explosion of arts, culture, dance and music – taking place in downtown Rahway, New Jersey. We line the streets with musicians, visual artists, performing artists, film makers, craft artisans and so much more stationed throughout the downtown- in our restaurants, salons, retail shops and more. This festival is FREE to attend and FREE to participate! Take one of the two NJ Transit train lines that bring you to Rahway and it will drop you right in the heart of the action!

Don’t worry if the weather doesn’t cooperate, everything moves indoors if it rains. You won’t have to miss a thing!

During Culture Crawl, the downtown is divided up into different areas or Zones, containing dancers,musicians, visual artists, performing artists, film makers, craft artisans and other features within its footprint.

  • Hannum’s Harley Davidson’s  Up-CYCLE Art show featuring pieces made from bike parts

Culture Crawl is hosting the 9th Annual Amazing Rahway Race!

This epic race, organized as a fundraiser for the Friends of the Rahway Public Library, is a scavenger hunt type of competition, requiring cunning, skill and knowledge of Rahway. ​Teams are given a series of clues that require traveling to all corners of the festival​ (​which encompasses the entire Rahway downtown​)​ to complete the puzz​l​es.​

Competing teams can display their unity and spirit by dressing alike or in outrageous fashion. The race begins and ends at the Rahway Public Library and takes approximately 2 hours to complete. The cost is $8.00 per person. Each team can have a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 people.

Registration opens August 1, 2019.
