Call for Artists: 12th Annual Bloomsbury Fine Art & Craft Festival

September 24 & 25
Bloomsbury, New Jersey

on the historic Main Street
60+ Exhibitors
Deadline:  August 26  


The Bloomsbury Fine Art & Fine Craft Festival provides funding for the Bloomsbury Elementary School cultural arts programs, while providing area residents and visitors the opportunity to appreciate the visual and performing arts.

This is a community run festival and all proceeds go directly to the local elementary school,  a very small school (pre-K thru 8th grade, one class for each grade) and a correspondingly very small budget...the festival provides for cultural and/or educational assemblies that the children would otherwise go without.  It supports local artists for an Artist's Day, authors doing readings & workshops, dance/music assemblies and many more activities.

The festival was started more than 10 years ago by a former art teacher at the school, and when she moved from the area community members took over the running of it.  It's an enormous undertaking & many many people are involved & committed to its success.

Bloomsbury Fine Art/Fine Craft Festival is in Hunterdon County, NJ, a rural yet affluent area of the state.  The Festival is  easy to reach by car - it is immediately adjacent to a major interstate highway, I-78.  We enjoy a high percentage of repeat artists who, among other benefits, simply enjoy the beautiful setting that the Festival provides.   


It is held in the Bloomsbury's historic district, on Main Street, which is lined with ancient maples and quaint Victorian-era homes.  It's a very charming location to pitch one's tent!  Past participants have also consistently commented on the warmth and helpfulness demonstrated by the Festival volunteers as well as the town residents.

Local non-profit organizations (churches, PTO and the FD Ladies Auxiliary) provide food booths, all featuring delicious homemade treats.  The festival also boasts a stage with a variety of local musical acts featured throughout the weekend.  In addition, each year there is a children's area with activities (face painting, etc.)
