ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - The Atlantic Highlands Chamber of Commerce, along with The Atlantic Highlands Historical Society is once again hosting their annual Arts & Crafts festival on July 20th from 11 am – 5 pm (rain date is July 21). The outdoor event is followed in the evening by FilmOneFest, the internationally acclaimed short film festival.  Both events are free and open to the public.  This wonderful family day starts at Veteran’s Park and runs down First Avenue.  The festival features numerous vendors - many from the local area. Local businesses will be part of the festivities too, bringing their wares out onto the sidewalk.  There are still vendor spaces available.  The cost is $60 for a 10x10 space (you must supply your own canopy/tent and tables/displays, etc).  We are looking for handcrafted items, as we do not compete with our local merchants.  Please contact Meredith (347)528-5372/ This email address is being protected from spambots.
