"Culture is the sum of all the forms of art, of love and of thought, which, over the course of centuries, have enabled man to be less enslaved."

As we move forward, we strive to continue to follow our mission:

"To foster an appreciation of the Arts,

provide knowledge of our past, a vision

of the future and to promote Cultural

awarness in the community."


The River Edge Cultural Center, a not-for-profit Museum/Cultural Center was founded in 1995 by a small group of dedicated volunteers. 2019 marks our 24th year of Cultural Programming. Since then, the Center has provided River Edge, as well as Bergen County, with 15 to 20 FREE programs yearly.


The Center has sponsored Summer Concerts under the Stars, West Point Concerts, Art Exhibits, Historical Displays, Children's Art Classes, Traveling Exhibits, Student Art Exhibitions, Lectures, Hands-on Workshops, Culinary Classes, Multi-Cultural Events to name a few.


We have also worked with our Library to bring concerts and lectures to the community. The Center has provided family programming, as well as several original interactive Murder Mysteries. We are a local resource for River Edge history, and have also partnered with our local schools.
