Back to School Picnic in Jersey City

September 16 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Back to School Picnic in Jersey City:

Join JCFamilies for the Annual Back to School Picnic on Friday, September 16th, at Hamilton Park from 4-7 pm!

Getting back into the swing of the new school year can be challenging, and this is a great opportunity to reconnect with your neighbors and community.  An early September picnic is an ideal time to take advantage of lingering warm temps and the vast outdoor space of Hamilton Park.

We hope to see you at the Back to School picnic as we navigate the transition from summer days to school days! We love organizing events for you and your family. If you haven’t attended our events before, visit our photo galleries to check out past events.
