Celebrate New Jersey!

This festival is an initiative of the Crossroads of the American Revolution Association. The Coordinating Group includes more than 20 chartering organizations with a common vision which emerged at an October 21, 2004 meeting convened by Crossroads called “Deep Roots and Strong Branches: Creating a ‘CELEBRATE NEW JERSEY’ day.” At that meeting, 115 participants representing a broad cross-section of interests agreed that New Jersey was so rich and diverse that we needed not a day, but a whole month for a fitting celebration!

The Crossroads of the American Revolution Association is also working toward the formation of New Jersey’s first National Heritage Area under the auspices of the U.S. National Park Service. For mor information about the Crossroads click here.

What role will the Crossroads of the American Revolution Association play?
Crossroads facilitates the meetings of the Coordinating Group, raises funds for Celebrate New Jersey!, creates thematic coherence, generates statewide publicity (through talk shows, meetings with editorial boards, joint marketing opportunities and event listings in newspaper inserts, and Public Service Announcements), and reaches out to constituent groups.
