Outpost in the Burbs, located in Montclair, is unique in northern New Jersey. It’s a place to enjoy live music on Friday and Saturday nights during the fall, winter and spring, and it’s an organization that offers opportunities to serve others in the community. And all of this takes place thanks to our volunteers, about 100 of them.
Since its inception in 1987, the Outpost has produced more than 500 concerts by internationally known folk artists—Judy Collins, Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Richie Havens, J.D. Souther, Dar Williams—and more than 50,000 people have attended. Outpost volunteers have donated more than 35,000 hours of their time through our programs affiliated with Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, Human Needs Food Pantry of Montclair, MESH, Community Food Bank of N.J., Dress for Success and the soup kitchen staffed by Outpost volunteers at Christ Episcopal Church in East Orange that feeds some 75 people twice a month.
