Recycling company TerraCycle is hosting the 10th annual Jersey Fresh Jam, Jersey’s biggest showcase for hip hop and graffiti, on Saturday, August 22, 2015 from noon to dusk.
The event offers graffiti artists from the tri-state area a place to showcase their work and will include performances from local MCs and musicians, featuring headliner Wu Tang Clan Member Cappadonna.
Visitors will also be able to check out fare from local food trucks and wares from vendors while watching artists paint the exterior walls of TerraCycle’s Trenton headquarters. Jersey Fresh Jam is free and open to the public. All painting spots are by invitation only.
Since 2005, when Jersey Fresh Jam started, TerraCycle has opened its doors to local artists and the community. Jersey Fresh Jam has grown from a small, low-key celebration into, not only New Jersey’s premier hip hop festival, but one of the most respected celebrations of hip hop culture on the East Coast.
The event is held at TerraCycle office, 121 New York Avenue, Trenton, N.J. 08638. (Rain Date: Sunday, August 23). For more information about the event, visit http://jerseyfreshjam.com.
