Event Summary
Visual artists working in all media are invited to register for the annual Metuchen Junebug ArtFest, which will be held from 6:00 - 10:00 pm every Saturday evening in June (June 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th) throughout the streets of downtown Metuchen NJ.
Now in its 10th year, the ArtFest has grown into a major art and music festival that welcomes local, regional and national artist participation.
The ArtFest features more than 150 visual and performing artists who participate in open air exhibits, window galleries, live music and performance art events as well as open mic sessions.
This one-of-a-kind event draws thousands of visitors from the tri-state area and transforms our central New Jersey community into a month-long celebration of the arts.

General Information
The Junebug ArtFest, located in downtown Metuchen, NJ is celebrating it's 10th Anniversary in 2017!  

Event dates for 2016 are June 3, 10, 17 and 24. On Saturday, June 17th, Main Street will be closed during Junebug to create additional room for live performances and visitors to peruse the exhibits.

This is the application for visual artists to participate in three venues: 1) Outdoor Sidewalk/Street Exhibitors; 2) Window Galleries; and 3) An Indoor Public Gallery. See the Booth Information section of our application for more details.

The ArtFest celebrates creativity of all types: works of art in oil, acrylic, watercolor, photography, sculpture, glass, precious stones, textiles; rock and jazz music; dance performances and open mic sessions. Performers should write to us directly at our contact link. We will forward your information directly to the appropriate people.
The "Brainy Borough" - Metuchen NJ - has been a mecca for artists of every discipline for more than a century. Sponsored by the Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce and the Metuchen Arts Council, the Junebug ArtFest reflects the Borough's commitment to nurturing all forms of creativity. The Junebug is just one of the ways Metuchen is working to maintain its status as the "Gateway to the Arts" in Middlesex County.
