Your Guide to the 4th of July 2019 in Northern NJ.
Independence Day falls in the middle of the week this year, but there are still many things to do on the 4th of July in NJ. Take advantage of your Thursday off to celebrate America’s birth in style at one of these celebrations.
Coinciding every year with the Fourth of July is the annual New Jersey State Fair at the Meadowlands Fairgrounds. This year, running from June 20th through July 7th, you can expect all of the normal family fun that comes with a day at the fair, but with the added bonus of some good ol’ Independence Day festivities including a fireworks spectacular at night.
The biggest seasonal event on the Jersey Shore just so happens to also be the largest NJ 4th of July celebration! For the 29th year, Oceanfest in Long Branch will bring thousands of people to the area for an all-day festival full of the sights, sounds, and summer sensations of being down along the Jersey Shore. Blending every type of childhood summer memory, from food festivals to street fairs, this event ends with a fireworks display that lights up the entire coastline!
For those wishing to celebrate a little up north in the Garden State, the 6th annual Jersey City Freedom & Fireworks Festival has expanded to include even more rides, entertainment, and a variety of food options to keep all the members of your family happy throughout the day.
