MUSIC FESTIVAL 2017
"...the organizers managed to scale the pinnacle of art-meets-organization on the first try;
it was stunning."

WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Behind the birth of every festival, there is a story. In this case, it involves a handful of music presenters in Jersey City and Manhattan who wanted to move exposure for a few of their favorite artists to a larger stage. As a non-profit organization, Hudson West presents and helps support musicians and our musical heritage.
Proceeds for the the 2017 Hudson West Folk Festival went to the cultural programs of 4th Street Arts, a co-sponsor of the event. 4th Street Arts presents yearly scholarships to local youth for the purposes of art and music education and advancement.
