The New Jersey Highlands Coalition (Coalition) announces the music lineup for the 3rd annual Highlands Festival at Waterloo (Highlands Festival) to be held Sept. 19 to 20 at Waterloo Village and Concert Field in Byram and Allamuchy.

For the past two years the festival had only utilized the historic Waterloo Village area, this year it has expanded to also include the Waterloo Concert Field. This environmental festival is a “Celebration of all Things Local” and promotes local music, food, art, history, cultural and natural resources.

“We continue to grow in size and scope as we host our 3rd annual Highlands Festival at Waterloo,” said Julia Somers, Executive Director of the Coalition. “This festival aims to raise awareness in a fun and interactive way about how important our natural resources are and in particular, to showcase that our precious water source here in the Highlands benefits much of the region.”

This rain-or-shine event is open to people of all ages and features a range of activities, including musical performances, a children’s corner, a local food court, beer garden, crafts and fair trade marketplace, historical tours, animal demonstrations, various workshops, kayaking, and guided nature hikes. A full schedule of events will be released soon. New also this year is the ability to camp at Waterloo during the festival. Festivalgoers that wish to camp are highly encouraged to reserve in advance online, due to the limited amount of spaces available.

The Highlands Festival celebrates Waterloo Village’s past glory as a renowned musical performance venue, enriched by its historic nature and the wealth of musical talent in New Jersey and surrounding areas. In keeping with the locally driven mission, the festival aims to highlight musicians with ties to New Jersey and our local tri-state area.

Atlanta Café Band

Joe Cirotti

“Music truly brings people together,” said Mark Clifford, Musician Coordinator for the Highlands Festival. “We believe we have curated a fantastic weekend of performers that will offer a terrific blend of an eclectic array of musical genres that will please people of all ages.”
