Park into a community happening that will take place at the park’s performance pergola and on the grassy area between the two ball fields. Located right on the waterfront, the performance pergola has the backdrop of the Bayonne Bridge, one of the reasons for the festival. “Bayonne is more than just a bridge, it’s a vibrant arts community,” Cheryl Mack says. “Bergen Point, the southern-most neighborhood in Bayonne, has come alive in the last three-to-five years. There’s a dance studio, yoga studio, bookstore, coffee shop, a couple of restaurants, and our gallery, the Bridge Arts Gallery. We’re all part of the Bergen Point Merchants Association. We want to help promote Bayonne and Bergen Point as a destination for food, coffee, books, dance, art. It’s definitely a village. It has a village feel.” The Bridge Arts

Festival will feature an Artists Market, Food Truck Row, a Crafty Fox craft corner for the kids, and so much more.

Artist Patricia Mulligan- Zbylut and her husband Bill Zbylut are both artists and Bayonne residents, and with Mulligan as curator, they will be participating in the upcoming Together in Art show along with 50 other artists from the Metropolitan area. Together in Art opens Fri, Sept. 14 with an Opening Reception from 6-to-9 pm, and it runs Sat, Sept. 15 from 1-to-6 pm, and Sun, Sept. 16 from 1-to-4 pm. The exhibition will feature some new faces along with seasoned members of the Art Circle of Bayonne and the Hudson Artists of New Jersey. Admission is free. The show will feature a wide range of mediums including oil, photography, mixedmedia, sculpture, glass, wood-carving, handmade jewelry, pencil, and charcoal. There will be 8 tables of 3D art, sculpture and jewelry, Mulligan-Zbylut says, and some abstract and humorous works, too. “I wanted a real mix of styles and medias, and luckily we got it,” Mulligan –Zbylut says.
