The 35th Jersey City Art & Studio Tour is October 4-6, 2024.

JCAST will adapt its format for its 35th anniversary year — the afternoons will be dedicated to artist studios, the evenings to galleries and exhibitions.

Registration opens on April 12, 2024 and closes at 11:59PM on July 8, 2024

The Jersey City Art and Studio Tour (JCAST) began as an invitation to visit artists’ studios, retailers and other downtown spaces, including the historic 111 First Street art collective and has been re-imagined several times over the ensuing decades. The inaugural studio tour was held in 1990 and spearheaded by Charles Kessler and Pat Donnelly of Gold Coast Magazine (a Jersey Journal weekly).

From 1994 to 2013 it was presented by nonprofit Pro Arts, a professional artist membership organization, in partnership with the City of Jersey City, and then the City’s Office of Cultural Affairs took over sole operations from 2014 through 2022.

The 34th JCAST was part of a larger Jersey City Art Week, which also includes the 5th Edition of Art Fair 14C, the 30th International Sculpture Center Conference, and Mana Contemporary’s Fall Open Studios.
