Bergen Square Day 2024 is Saturday, September 14th, 12-6 PM
Thank you to all who came out for Bergen Square Day 2023!
The annual family-friendly event was a huge success filled with music, theater, dance, kids’ activities, food, arts, crafts, merchandise, and community exchange.
Located at the intersection of Bergen Avenue and Academy Street, Bergen Square is the historical heart of Jersey City. Today it is a vibrant, bustling community where residents, commuters, shoppers, students, and churchgoers come together to form an extraordinary, unique urban enclave.
Ancient home to the Lenni Lenape and established by the Dutch as the first permanent European settlement in New Jersey in 1660, Bergen Square has welcomed immigrants from around the world for centuries and now flourishes as the historical and cultural wellspring of Jersey City.
