What IS Lead East?

Unquestionably the largest and highest quality classic car and Rock 'n' Roll event in the NJ/NY/CT Tri-State area. With more than 34 live bands and musicians plus five DJ's inside and out. We deliver a family oriented festival packed full of events that celebrates decades of legendary Rock 'n' Roll. Over the years more than 250,000 people have come to our events. Many have told us it is the best, most fun, most nostalgic event they have ever attended!


Food & Beverages

Food ranges from several restaurants and vendors inside the hotel to outdoor food trucks and vendors with a nice array of reasonably priced items. The Hilton sells alcoholic beverages in the hotel and beer in the parking lot.
