We still have two fun-filled months of summer left. While hitting the beach and laying by the pool is fun, don’t forget that Jersey City has a few places where residents can enjoy free music. Two of our favorite places to enjoy live music this summer are Liberty State Park and J. Owen Grundy Pier.
Every Sunday and Tuesday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Liberty State Park hosts Summerfest 2018. Pack a blanket, gather some friends and enjoy live tunes on the Hudson River with the beautiful Manhattan backdrop. Each week they’ll have different genres of music such as jazz, classic rock, pop, folk, indie and much more. It’s a wonderful way to end the week or to get some fresh air after a long day at work.
Take a midday music break down on the water at J. Owen Grundy Pier. Nearly every Thursday this summer, The City of Jersey City, the Office of Cultural Affairs and RiverviewJazz are welcoming a range of jazzy artists for two full hours of groovy tunes. The pier stretches out onto the Hudson River and has incredible views of the Manhattan skyline. They have benches available, but feel free to bring your own comfy chair. All events are free, family-friendly and barrier-free. In the event of rain, concerts will be held in the Harborside Atrium, 34 Exchange Place.
