The METFEST celebrates creativity of all types: works of art in oil, acrylic, watercolor, photography, sculpture, glass, precious stones, jewelry, and textiles.
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 METFEST reflects the Borough's commitment to nurturing all forms of creativity. The Metuchen Art & Music Festival is just one of the ways Metuchen is working to maintain its status as the "Gateway to the Arts" in Middlesex County. 

Booth Information
