Our 39th Annual Giralda Music & Arts Festival took place on Sunday, June 25. Due to inclement weather, the event was moved to our rain location at Liquid Church. A huge thank you to Liquid for being such a wonderfully accommodating location that enabled us to bring every element of our day indoors.
We’d also like to thank our energizing pre-show group, The Tia Holt Experience and world-class New Jersey Symphony for providing incredible live music. Our talented art vendors, fun children activities, and delicious food trucks added to the magic of the day and we couldn’t be more proud to bring the community together with the arts.
