Each year students and teachers from all over Somerset County and guest artists gather to celebrate the arts in a safe and welcoming space. Open to all 13 to 19-year old students who attend school in Somerset County, this event provides a forum for students can showcase their talents through exhibitions of visual art, presentations of theatrical scenes, dance, vocal and instrumental music performances, and presentations original film and creative writing. Students also get to experience the work of their peers and receive constructive feedback from professional artists working in their respective fields.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival was held in person at Raritan Valley Community College. All performances were live, and offerings included master classes and demonstrations as well as an anthology of students’ creative writing and a gallery of students’ visual art.
