Teen Arts Festival

The Bergen County Teen Arts Festival is a celebration of the alliance of the arts and youth. It is founded on the belief that the arts are an essential language that provides an indispensable means of self-expression to our students. Through workshops in all the arts disciplines, the Festival strives to engage each student at a deeper level of artistry and professionalism. Through critiqued performances and exhibits, the Festival showcases the extraordinary talents of our middle and high schools students and their teachers. A prime benefit of the Festival is the opportunity it provides students to validate themselves as artists by spending a day in the company of other artists who participate in a myriad of creative fields on many levels.

The 2019 festival was our 42nd annual gathering of arts students in our county. We are proud to have served over 145,000 students, teachers and administrators over the years In 2017, 56 High Schools and Middle Schools were in attendance at the Festival.
