2022 National Night Out Events in New Jersey

National Night Out, America’s Night Out Against Crime, began in 1984 as an initiative to help communities and police come together to fight crime in their neighborhoods. Since then, more than 35.4 million people in 11,310 communities from all across our country have participated. Jersey Family Fun doesn’t want you to miss out on the fun so we’ve got you covered with a state-wide listing of National Night Out Events in New Jersey organized, of course, by region, county, and town. 

Originally published in 2011, we update this annually for Jersey Family Fun readers. We are currently working on 2022 updates. While many NJ towns have canceled in-person events for National Night Out we are still determined to find you as many as we can. We will update this and all of our listing of National Night Out events in New Jersey through August 2, 2022.

National Night Out is celebrated primarily on the first Tuesday in August. The 2022 date is August 3, 2022. Be sure to check the listing below as some towns celebrate on a different date, this date will be noted.

2022 National Night Out Events in New Jersey

Below, we list every New Jersey municipality by region, county, and town. If a town has had a National Night Out event in the past (that we were aware of) and/or is having one this year the town name will be underlined and clickable. When you click on the town name it will take you to our event listing. One of two things will happen.

  • You will either see the date and information for the 2022 event OR
  • You will see the event has passed either because there is no 2022 information yet OR the event happened before you viewed the event listing.

If a town name is not clickable, we are not aware of any current or previous National Night Out events in that town.

If you have a National Night Out event in New Jersey we should add, please use our event submission form.

6 Things to know about National Night Out Events in New Jersey

Admission is free.

NJ National Night Out events are community events usually sponsored by local police forces, community organizations, and parks and recreation departments. While I can’t say 100% of the events are free, I’ve never seen an admission charge for a National Night Out event.

Activities are almost always free.

In keeping with the spirit of a community event, most activities at National Night Out events in New Jersey are free. If there’s a fee it’s usually just a few dollars. Those fees are usually donated to local charities or to the nonprofit organizations running the event.

You’ll see engaging demonstrations.

One of the neatest things about NJ National Night Out events are the demonstrations you don’t typically get to see. We’ve seen first responders drop buckets of water from helicopters, squat teams perform drills, and firefighters put out small fires.

We’ve also seen local dance clubs, cheerleading teams, and martial arts schools demonstrate their skills in outstanding shows that might just have your kids wanting to take up a new activity.

The kids will burn off so much energy.

Bouncy houses, archery ranges, obstacle courses, dance parties, and more, there are so many interactive activities at New Jersey National Night Out events. Your child should burn off all that energy and might fall asleep before you’ve even closed their bedroom door for the night.

It’s a fabulous chance to get to know businesses and organizations in your community.

Curious about that local karate school? Tempted to try out a dish from the new restaurant in town? Want to know which businesses support your community? NJ National Night Out events are a fantastic way to find out about the businesses in your local community.

National Night Out events are perfect opportunities for small businesses to connect to families in their area. As a parent (and a business owner) walking by the tables, I know the people on the other side of the table are usually the small business owners, local teachers, or government officials. It’s my chance to ask these owners, representatives, and teachers questions one on one. It’s a chance for our kids to ask questions too.

Freebies galore!!

How do businesses and community groups pull us into their activities or tempt us to visit their booth? With freebies of course! My boys have earned pins shooting bows and pretending to fish with Bass Pro Shops. We’ve brought home insulated coolers by signing up for a Shoprite Price Plus Card. There have been firefighter helmets for learning about fire prevention and free pizza for picking up a new pizzeria menu.

We’ve collected frisbees, Home Depot kids building kits, stress balls, and more. We always bring a bag for collecting National Night Out freebies, but don’t worry if you forget one. There are usually several businesses handing out reusable totes.
