Edgewater Arts Council receives Bergen County Grant


Welcome to our Edgewater Art Council website! Check out our Events Calendar and learn about the various artistic and musical happenings which have become a vital part of Edgewater’s cultural scene. 

Our main event, the Edgewater Arts and Music Festival, will again take place at the idyllic Old River Road/Thompson Lane in Edgewater. This year we are celebrating our 25th anniversary on September 18, 2016 from 11am-6pm. We are inviting artists and musicians to join us on this historic day and enjoy what our Festival offers to Edgewater’s residents and visitors. Parking is free (a shuttle bus will run continually from the Edgewater Commons parking lot from 11am-6pm.) We are a non-profit, juried art show and have raised a total of $5,250 for cash prizes awarded to the exhibiting artists for Best of Show, Best Art, Best Photography, Best Craft, Best Mixed Media, Best Fiber Arts and Best Student Artists.

Edgewater is now a recognized part of New Jersey’s new Gold Coast. And the non-profit Arts Council’s annual festival has become Edgewater’s most popular cultural event! Come and join us — look at the art created by very original artists, listen to the music from our band stand, enjoy the entertainment and food and drinks available from the local vendors.
