Singing, dancing, painting; musicians, artists, actors; filmmakers, designers, photographers. In Westwood, our residents have shown an immense appreciation for the arts and the artists that use their talents to bring thoughtful, fun, interesting programs to our parks, stages and streets. In 2020 Celebrate Westwood had a unique opportunity to bring entertainment downtown to help create a spirited atmosphere for residents looking for more than a stroll. The successful launch of Arts on the Avenue has led to an expansion of the program with the goal of bringing more varied art experiences - painting, sculpture, photography, music and more - to our town.
As we ramp up our search for artists and musicians, we urge anyone interested in adding their talent to the mix to fill out an application here. Celebrate Westwood is thrilled to host the Bergen County Players on five occasions during this summer season. The Bergen County Players (BCP) is an 89-year-old non-profit organization that has become one of the premier little theatre groups in the United States. We are thrilled the Westwood Historic Bandstand has been able to serve as an auxiliary summer stage and are thankful to both the BCP and Westwood Recreation Department for allowing the opportunity to bring live theatre to Westwood. https://www.bcplayers.org
