About the Event
This September 16, 2023, rain or shine, we will celebrate the rich history and cultural diversity of Bergen Square!
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, pedestrians commuters, shoppers, students, and church-goers come together to form an extraordinary, unique urban enclave.
Ancient home to the Leni Lenape and established by the Dutch in 1660 as the first permanent European settlement in New Jersey, Bergen Square has welcomed immigrants from around the world for centuries. It now flourishes as the historical and cultural wellspring of Jersey City.
