Hub City Sounds Festival Is Virtual and In-Person

FREE AND FAMILY-FRIENDLY: The 11th annual Hub City Sounds brings art, music, food and more to New Brunswick starting August 7.

New Brunswick Cultural Center/Arts New Brunswick presents the 11th annual Hub City Sounds series, taking place this summer to fall from August 7 through October 31. The free series combines performing, visual, and culinary arts and has events for all ages and tastes. This year’s festival is both virtual and in-person.

Hub City Sounds events include the Indo American Festival on August 7, the New Brunswick HEART Festival on August 14, the Sixth Annual Carifest on August 21, the 10th Annual Central Jersey Jazz Festival on September 11, Arts New Brunswick Festival and MCFOODS Food Drive on September 18, and the Corazon Latino/Dia De Muertos/Halloween Celebration on October 31.

“The arts scene in New Brunswick is back and we are thrilled to announce the return of Hub City Sounds, which will provide entertainment both in-person and virtually,” said Tracey O’Reggio Clark, interim executive director of the New Brunswick Cultural Center. “This year’s hybrid model allows for our guests to choose their arts viewing experience. They can join us live and in-person or they can sit back, relax, and enjoy the festivities from the comfort of their own home.”

Additional activities and events include music and dance performances, artist interviews, food tutorials, spoken word performances, craft making, behind-the-scenes videos of the New Brunswick theater scene, and more. For a full schedule, visit NewBrunswickArts.org.
