Celebrate Independence Day with a bang at the 4th Annual Jersey City Freedom and Fireworks Festival in Liberty State Park! Enjoy live music, children’s entertainment, amusement rides, vendors galore, a delectable smorgasbord of food and drink, and a breathtaking fireworks display by Grucci set against a stunning backdrop of the New York City Skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

This year entertainment options have been expanded to include additional carnival rides, more live performers from 2 stages, constant kids entertainment, a large beer garden, and a smorgasbord of food options all with a stunning backdrop of Ellis Island and the NYC skyline.  Jersey City’s own Kool & The Gang will headline the event taking the stage at dusk, just before one of the largest fireworks displays in the region colorfully illuminates the Statue of Liberty; visible from both sides of the Hudson River.
