Summertime is the perfect time for the entire family to attend tons of cool events together. The kids are out of school, parents often get some time off, and the days are longer. You and the family can fit in tons of awesome activities into one single day or spread them out over the entire summer. However you decide to spend your time, there is no shortage of family activities to partake in in Jersey City this summer.

Let’s check out some of the best family events in Jersey City this summer. Whether you are looking for indoor activities, outdoor activities, educational activities, or something else, there is a little something for everyone this summer.

4th Annual Cultural Diversity Festival

On August 26, 10 am to 2 pm, come and stop by at the 4th annual cultural diversity festival.

“Jersey City has one of the most diverse populations in the United States. Here you can find 75 languages spoken in the public schools. The city is engulfed in a blanket of diversity and is truly a melting pot. The festival is a day of celebrating the diversity in our community. There will be an array of fun and culture-related activities planned for the whole family, arts & crafts, musical acts, dancers, an art show and — of course — lots of delicious food representing the diversity in Jersey City.
This unique and special event would be a great opportunity for children and families to experience the vibrant and diverse cultures of Jersey City! Please join us at Hamilton Park, JC.”
