September 9
Edgewater, New Jersey
Presented By: Edgewater Arts Council
60 Artists
Deadline: August 1

Registration Fee: 
$100 (Early Bird)   $125 after June 30

Located in the historic art district of Edgewater called Shadyside, the neighborhood attracts residents and visitors to its charming restaurants, park with gazebo and pond lilies and access to entertainment along the Hudson River. It is considered a mecca for families of all ages who are shopping for art items and gifts for the upcoming holidays.  

Edgewater has been named by CNN Business as:
"one of the top 10 cities attracting upwardly mobile, financially secure millennials who have an easy commute to Manhattan." 
The 27th annual Arts & Music Festival is Bergen County's largest juried art competition offering $5250 in cash prizes in seven categories including a $1000 "Best of Show." The annual festival is Edgewater's largest and most prestigious event.
Marketing Plan:

This year we are combining this year's show with the Antique Car Show and the International Festive Fair which will definitely enhance the visitor traffic for additional sales.These three concurrent events in one location will provide a unique Sunday cultural experience for all.  We will surpass our 4,000 attendees from last year's event.

We utilize all media in our marketing including a 4-page advertising supplement with program schedule in the local Edgewater Residential newspaper. We get comp ad space, utilize social media including Facebook, Neighborhood Watch, and other online portals. We get comp ads on NY Waterway on the ferry service to both Edgewater and Weehawken. We have partnered with jazz radio stations for public service announcements and on-air talent serving as music hosts at our Festival. We have a strong public relations outreach and our volunteers are visible at other art events/shows to promote artists to our Festival. We also have strong backing from the Borough of Edgewater who promotes our activities online on the Borough website.
