JERSEY GIRL FESTIVAL
A concept for a local art and music festival celebrating all things New Jersey women and girls. It’s difficult to define a Jersey Girl; while most of the country may hear the phrase and think of Snooki and the gang, others may reminisce the romanticized shore girls that Bruce Springsteen sang of. This festival does not try to define the Jersey Girl, as she is whatever the hell she wants. Instead, the Jersey Girl Festival aims to bring locals together to Asbury Park, a classic beach town, to support womxn artists, musicians, and businesses. Local music and art are defining features of the Jersey Shore, though men often dominate the scene. At this festival, however, absolutely everyone is welcome to enjoy a good ol’ Jersey time.
