South Jersey Arts Fest

South Jersey Arts Fest

Saturday and Sunday, June 2nd and 3rd, 1 – 6pm

Thank you for joining us for the South Jersey Arts Fest! All our friends ignited their imagination during a jam-packed weekend of performance, innovative arts exhibits and immersive workshops for the whole family!

Check out our gallery of photos from the Festival.

Many friends enjoyed the South Jersey Arts Festival on June 2nd and 3rd by creating art and learning new things in the Visual Arts, Performing Arts and STEAM workshops. The Arts Camp Pop Up was filled with lots of activities just for kids while parents visited other areas of the event including the Art of Winemaking Tent. Special thanks to Auburn Road Vineyards for making the Art of Winemaking Tent a great success. And a heartfelt thank you to all the musicians and dance troupes, and youth performers who helped make the event a weekend to remember!

  • On Sunday morning, intermediate and advanced riders can join the South Jersey Cycling Tour (sponsored by Action Wheels) on a 30 mile round trip tour of South Jersey with Auburn Road Vineyards as their destination.
