New Jersey Folk Festival

New Jersey Folk Festival

As the Co-Director of the New Jersey Folk Festival at Rutgers University, I lead a team of students in internship courses that plan and produce the festival. The festival was founded in 1975 and has been a pillar of the larger Rutgers Day celebrations on campus alongside Ag Field Day. The festival highlights arts and creativity of the many cultural groups that make New Jersey and the surrounding regions their home. For more information on the festival, please visit
