Teen Arts Program

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.

2023 Teen Arts Festival will be held IN-PERSON!

History

The 2022 festival was our 47th annual gathering of arts students in our county. While the festival has been online for the past two years, we are excited to get back to an in-person festival in 2023! We are proud to have served over 145,000 students, teachers, and administrators over the years. A huge thank you to everyone involved for helping to make the Bergen County Teen Arts Festival one of the best festivals in the state. We look forward to many more years of exemplary festivals in our county.

Enrollment in the festival is by school district within Bergen County. Please contact Vivian Davis, the Teen Arts Festival Administrator, with any questions at vdavis@co.bergen.nj.us or 201-336-7252.
