Year to year Fall Into the Arts becomes more and more unique, and just as unique is the Croft Farm Arts Center, which has also experienced many changes. Built in 1779, Croft Farm was once a working mill, farm and stop on the Underground Railroad. This historic landmark has played an important role in Southern New Jersey for more than 200 years. In 1995, the township converted the tractor barn into a 200-seat performance venue with concert-worthy acoustics. The Arts Center has become a cultural haven for many Cherry Hill residents providing “big-city” entertainment without all the hassle of bridge tolls and parking. Last summer renovations to the Art Center included a new vestibule, more flexibility for seating during events, a repositioned stage, partitioned walls and a facelift to the restroom facilities. These exciting changes will be sure to improve your entire experience.

For more information about Fall Into the Arts or to reserve tickets to any of the events, please contact the Recreation Department at 856-488-7868, or email Arts@CHTownship.com.
