Relax and enjoy spectacular views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline at Jersey City’s family-friendly festivals. Catch free outdoor performances by world-famous musicians, plus children’s activities, food trucks, beer gardens, vendors, and more.
The sixth annual Riverview Jazz Festival is back and bigger than ever, with free all-day concerts in Jersey City, and dozens of other events throughout Hudson County.
The week-long festival culminates with the free outdoor blowouts, at riverside sites offering gorgeous views of the Hudson River and Manhattan. These major events feature all-day concerts starting at noon on June 9 in Jersey City. There will be about 30 other events, concerts and gigs throughout the county, presenting some of today’s best players in jazz and salsa music. “Jersey City is among the most diverse areas in the country. About half the artists we’re presenting live around here,” says Bryan Beninghove, the executive director of the nonprofit RiverviewJazz.org. “It’s a great time to be in this area. People are taking chances, opening new businesses and presenting live music in many places.”
Saturday, June 09, the Riverview Jazz Festival week supplies a full day of fun family festivities starting at noon at Riverview Fisk Park in Jersey City. This time, the array of amazing entertainment will be presented on two stages, for listeners’ enjoyment. All of the other important elements will be on hand once again: stunning views of the river and skyline, tempting treats from food trucks, activities for children, a beer garden for adults, and vendors well-stocked with one-of-a-kind finds. There’s plenty of room to stretch out on blankets or lawn chairs and soak up the fun.
