Main Street Highland Park is seeking Central Jersey artists, crafters, businesses, vendors, and food vendors for Highland Park’s 14th annual arts street festival, Arts in the Park, on Sunday September 16, 2018. This renowned festival showcases fine arts and crafts from all over the region and shines a spotlight on Highland Park’s vibrant, diverse, multi-faceted arts scene. What sets this arts fair apart from a general street fair is the fact that it is a juried art show with expert judges from throughout New Jersey. This annual celebration of the arts draws thousands (last year an estimated 10,000) of art enthusiasts to stroll through downtown Highland Park and enjoy artistic offerings, live music, food, and much more. Participants in the juried art show display and sell their work under tents along Raritan Avenue (Route 27) in Highland Park. READ MORE
