New Jersey July 4th Events, Parades, Fireworks & More

We are currently updating and adding events for 2021 4th of July events in New Jersey. Crossed out listings are events cancelled for 2021, but we expect them to return in 2022.

We are always excited for the Fourth of July in New Jersey! Bike parades, fireworks, barbecues and festivals usher in the official start of Summer in the Garden State.

Families and friends get together and it’s time to get outside whether it’s by the ocean or a lake or your downtown or your backyard. Even though this year the holiday falls on a Sunday night, you’ll still find plenty to enjoy on the 4th, the day before July 4th, the week leading up to it and in the weeks following July 4th. Not all the July 4th events in New Jersey are on July 4th.

You don’t have to look any further than Jersey Family Fun’s event calendar! As always, we have all the information you need to know, the who, what where and how much so you can spend more time having FUN!
