On Saturday, September 12, Montclair’s lawns will be the place to be. First, there is the MAM Lawn Party and then later in the evening the second annual Dance on the Lawn takes place at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.

The free outdoor dance concert founded by Montclair resident Charmaine Warren, will include a diverse group of artists from New York, state-wide from New Jersey, and some of Montclair’s own.
