The festival will kick off in Atlantic City from June 7 to 11, in Asbury Park from June 14 to 18 and in Newark from June 21 to 25.
Mayors Ras Baraka of Newark, John Moor of Asbury Park, and Marty Small Sr. of Atlantic City joined Governor Phil Murphy; First Lady Tammy Murphy; NJPAC President and CEO John Schreiber and Executive Producer David Rodriguez during a press event for the new statewide festival produced by NJPAC. The event took place at the Betty Wold Johnson Stage at Prudential Hall, New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.
The North to Shore festival is a brand new technology arts, comedy, film and music festival to be held in all three cities over three successive weekends in June.
