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. 

History

The 2021 festival was our 46th annual gathering of arts students in our county. It was also the first year we did the entire festival virtually due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We are proud to have served over 145,000 students, teachers, and administrators over the years. As we approach the 47th annual festival, we want to thank everyone involved for helping to make the Bergen County Teen Arts Festival one of the best festivals in the state, and 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.
