The Glen Ridge Art Patrons Association (GRAPA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to furthering the fine, visual and media arts in the Glen Ridge schools and community. We are pleased to announce that the Arts Festival will now be run by and produced by the Glen Ridge High School Home & School Association and the Glen Ridge Environmental Advisory Committee. The Arts Festival will combine with the Eco Fair that also takes place simultaneously every year with the Arts Festival.
The new event now called the Annual Glen Ridge Arts and Eco Fair will take place outdoors, rain or shine, in the area adjacent to the Glen Ridge High School on Ridgewood Avenue and along Ridgewood Avenue on the day before Mother’s Day, May 9, 2020, 10am to 4pm. Join us for this long running and highly anticipated family-friendly event – the largest community event in Glen Ridge, attracting thousands of visitors! This joint celebration of the arts and the environment brings together a curated exhibition of over 100 arts and craft vendors, sustainability and wellness vendors, eco exhibits and hands-on demonstrations such as beekeeping, composting, solar and car technology. Join us for a fun family day of arts, crafts, and eco-concious exhibits that will inform and enlighten!
