Cultural & Heritage Committee

The Linden Cultural and Heritage Committee is a Committee comprised of all volunteers who work to provide high-quality festivals, events and entertainment to residents of the City of Linden and our neighbors in other towns. Most all of these events are provided at no cost or a low cost to attendees. Annual events include street fair(s), concerts, holiday events, plays, craft bazaars, and more.

We meet the second Thursday of each month at 7pm in the 3rd floor Planning Room at Linden City Hall on Wood Avenue. All Linden residents are welcome to join us, attend meetings, and help bring more exciting events to Linden!
