Folklife doesn’t happen somewhere else — it happens right here in South Jersey!  Come explore the lives of traditional craftspeople, local musicians, and the many rich stories of Folklife in the Pinelands and on the Barnegat Bay.  You never know, you might even run into the Jersey Devil!

The Jersey Shore Folklife Center documents, supports, and presents the diverse communities and traditions of the Jersey Shore and the Pinelands.  The center offers classes, tours, school programs, artist demonstrations, and changing exhibits.  Stop by anytime during museum hours to check out the new and expanded Folklife center at Marshelder Gun Club.
