As you know, ProgStock’s daily performances will take place October 13-15, 2017 at the Union County Performing Arts Center (or UCPAC) theater located at 1601 Irving Street, Rahway, New Jersey 07065. After each performance, meet & greet sessions with the performers will take place at Patria Latin Bistro and Lounge, which is located directly behind the UCPAC theater building. This wonderful restaurant will host our “vendor fair”, where you can browse merchandise from our sponsors and partners all weekend long…and it will also host our Late Night Events within its spacious party lounge!
NOTE: We have changed which hotel will be our “host” hotel!
We’ve found an excellent choice that is in a perfect location very close to the UCPAC theater: the Home2 Suites by Hilton located at 667 East Milton Avenue, Rahway, New Jersey 07065. This hotel is where the artists, staff, and special guests of ProgStock will stay throughout the weekend. It is an extremely short and easy drive from the theater, and provides free standard wi-fi, free parking, and free breakfast for everyone. We’ve negotiated a special nightly rate for ProgStock attendees, so come stay at this amazing hotel with us! This rate is $129/night and will apply to all three nights of the festival, from check-in on Friday, October 13 through check-out on Monday, October 16…and they will even honor that rate if you wish to come in one day earlier! You can call the Home2 Suites by Hilton directly and ask for the ProgStock nightly rate (this is the recommended option), or you can book online at their website…but, if you do book online, you will need to give the hotel a call so they can update your nightly rate to our special ProgStock rate.
Of course, you can choose from any of the numerous great hotels in and around Rahway…whatever suits you best! But, another good choice is right next-door to the Home2 Suites by Hilton, the Best Western Riverview Inn & Suites located at 1747 Paterson Street, Rahway, New Jersey 07065. This hotel is also an extremely short and easy drive from the UCPAC theater, and also provides free standard wi-fi, free parking, and free breakfast for everyone. We have worked out an incredible nightly ProgStock rate of $99.99/night for this hotel, which will apply to all three nights of the festival, from check-in on Friday, October 13 through check-out on Monday, October 16…and they will also honor that rate if you come in one day earlier! Call the Best Western Riverview Inn & Suites directly and ask for the ProgStock nightly rate (recommended), or book online at their website…but, if you do book online, you will need to give the hotel a call so they can update your nightly rate to our special ProgStock rate.
Getting To/From the Venue/Hotels
For those folks who will not have their own vehicle with them at the festival…there are many options for getting between the venue and hotels. First, as always, you can carpool with friends (you will see plenty of old ones, and make plenty of new ones, at this festival!) and get where you need to be. Hands down, that’s most likely going to cover all the needs you have in this department. There’s always taxicabs, which will be quite aware of the festival and easy to grab (and our staff will help you, if needed). But also keep in mind that Uber and Lyft are available, too…it’s a commuter town, after all! Cost estimates between the UCPAC and the Home2 Suites are around $6 (car) and $10 (SUV). Similar costs will get you to/from the Best Western, too. Share any of those rides with friends, and you’ll do just fine!
We’re working hard to make this happen!
The ProgStock Festival team is committed to making sure that this year’s festival happens! In addition to our PledgeMusic campaign, we are currently pursuing other funding via sponsorships and donations. If you would like to make a personal donation to support the ProgStock Festival, we can offer you a 501(c)(3) receipt for tax purposes…so please contact us if you are interested in helping us!
Just 13 days left to Pledge your support! Once we reach our funding goal, people who have pledged by July 31st will get special gifts…..so if you haven’t done so, make sure you get your “Boarding Passes” (tickets) over at:
Thanks, and we’re looking forward to seeing you in October in New Jersey!
