This September, on Saturday, September 9, we will once again celebrate the rich history and cultural diversity of Bergen Square on Bergen Square Day 2023!

The family-friendly event will be an afternoon of 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.
