Our Roots

The Arts are Alive and Culture Thrives in Northern Brookhaven through the Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council’s (GPJAC) in-depth programming vision.

Since 1986, GPJAC has served the entire Northern Brookhaven area of Long Island from the North Shore down to the Long Island Expressway, a community of approximately 230,000 people consisting of all age, socio-economic and racial groups. We provide support for artistic activity embodying music, film, visual arts, and all educational and cultural endeavors as they relate to the arts. This mission is accomplished by coordinating our efforts with arts organizations, artists, local municipalities, schools, art galleries, libraries, theaters, and other such organizations that share our common goal. Most importantly, we do this for you! Our friends, our neighbors, our community!

Active programs and services include producing the Charles Dickens Festival for the Village of Port Jefferson; the Port Jefferson Documentary Series voted Best of Long Island for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020; Sunday Street Concert Series at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook; Sunset Concert Series in Harborfront Park,  Fiddle & Folk Festival, Wednesdays through July and August; Classical Plus, a true salon-type setting for excellent classical music performances; Triad Concert Series, a group of three classical oriented concerts geared for a general audience; Something New Concert Series that features original music from talented singer-songwriters and many more outreach programs that bring the joy of the arts to our Northern Brookhaven community.
