Mission:

To bring people together to discover, create, learn and celebrate the arts.

About Us:

The Belmar Arts Council was founded in 2004 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for our residents, visitors and neighbors by helping the arts to flourish. We offer diverse and exciting experiences in both the visual and performing arts for people of all ages, year-round; and promote public participation in and support for the arts. We believe that the arts builds pride in our communities; connects people of diverse backgrounds; and occupies an essential role in the lifelong learning experience. BelmarArts also serves as a resource to civic, municipal, business and other organizations throughout the region.

Fantastic always changing art upon the walls, and imaginative and creative music usually playing in the building on weekends during the winter, and Saturday nights for free at Peyanoe plaza in the summer months. Chris Krebs has brought the most talented musicians of all kinds to the BAC, and the crowds have been getting bigger, and enjoying everything from Jazz, to Blue Grass, to popular, to Indie, and almost all original, and/or at least unusual. The best of the area! Best venue for live music in NJ!
