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, filmmakers, 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, filmmakers, craft artisans and other features within its footprint.

The Cranford Clay Courts Club, located on Springfield Avenue in Cranford, is currently accepting new members for the 2019 Season.
The Club offers a long outdoor tennis season, with the courts usually open from April into December in recent years, depending upon weather conditions.
In addition, the club enjoys the distinction of being the only outdoor tennis club in the area with a lighting system for night play on the Club’s well-maintained three har-tru (soft) courts.
The culture and communal aspect of the club offers members the somewhat unique opportunity to “find a game” without needing to bring a partner, particularly on weekday and weekend mornings. There are several social events throughout the season, Monday night open mixed doubles and clinics on Sunday afternoons at 4pm.
Membership in the Cranford Clay Courts Club is open to both resident and
non-residents. For more information in joining or participating in Team Tennis,
Friday, September 27th 5PM-8PM
Saturday, September 28th 12PM-8PM
Sunday, September 29th 12PM-6PM
