The Cape May County Culture and Heritage Commission invites all county teens to participate in the 2018 “Surf’s Up” Teen Arts Festival April 12, at various locations in Cape May.

Any teen from Cape May County is invited to display their talent, meet with professionals in their field and attend workshops or master classes. Students who participate and receive a designated score then become eligible to participate in the New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival.

The Cape May County Teen Arts Festival is part of a statewide multidisciplinary program in the fine and performing arts. Open to any student in public or private school, as well as home-schooled students and those who are involved in extra-curricular private instruction, the program encompasses activities in dance, theater, vocal music, instrumental music, film, creative writing and the visual arts. 

Pre-registration is required and registration deadline is April 6. For more information regarding the 2017 Festival, including rules and online registration, see or email
