Arts & Culture

Burlington County is home to many exhibits that feature Fine Arts and Photography from all of over the region.  In addition to art exhibits throughout the year, individual art programs are held in the parks.  A celebration of the arts is held each September with the Arts in the Park Festival at Smithville Park.

Supporting The Arts in Burlington County

The Burlington County Board of County Commissioners is pleased to announce the 2022 Local Arts Grant.

 The Local Arts Program (LAP) provides funding to local arts organizations from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA)/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. General Operating Support and Special Projects grants are available to qualified organizations. 

 A panel consisting of professional individuals involved in the arts (peer panelists) will review the applications for LAP funding. This process is based on the perceived quality of the proposed programming, and the anticipated value to the community. The Burlington County Board of County Commissioners will then approve and re-grant some or all of the funding to individual group applicants for implementation of their programs.
