Burlington County will be hosting its annual Teen Arts Festival on March 14 & 15, 2018. The festival gives Burlington County youth between the ages of 13 and 19 the chance to show off their talents through performing arts, visual arts, film and literary arts. The festival runs over two days, with day one playing host to middle school students and day two to high school students. Scheduled throughout each day will be vocal, instrumental and theatrical performances, as well as an art exhibit featuring 2D and 3D fine art, photography and graphic design. All genres will be adjudicated by professionals in the field, giving the students the opportunity to learn ways to hone their craft. This event is a great outlet for Burlington County teens to express themselves and to also see and hear what their peers are doing. Genre-specific workshops will be offered to the students each day. Approximately 40 schools within Burlington County participate each year. Email for more information.
