I've been involved with the Junebug Art festival in Metuchen since its beginning 11 years ago. There have been a number of changes to the event in the past few years-- we switched from Friday nights to Saturday nights and we were also able to close Main Street which allowed for a much more festive feel. This year, the name is changing and, more importantly, instead of being 4 nights, it's one full day. The committee has been working really hard to concentrate our focus to bring high end art and music to Metuchen. We hope you all come down to METFEST on Saturday, June 9 from noon to 10 pm and experience the wide range of live art and music as well as fun, food, and friends. If you are a visual artist and want to participate, applications are being accepted until May 1 through Zapp and you can find all the information here. I am personally really excited about our new and improved festival and I can't wait to see many of you there!
