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. 

Due to the uncertainties of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Bergen County Division of Cultural & Historic Affairs, together with Bergen Community College, must cancel this year’s Bergen County Teen Arts Festival scheduled for Friday, May 15.  Our heartfelt thanks to all students, artists, and school liaisons for their work in helping to prepare a great festival.  We hope the enthusiasm continues to make the 2021 Teen Arts Festival the best yet. For more information, please contact Teen Arts Director at


The 2019 festival was our 44th annual gathering of arts students in our county.  We are proud to have served over 145,000 students, teachers, and administrators over the years.  As we approach the 45th 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 or 201-336-7252.
