And that’s a wrap! Special thanks to Mayor Fulop, the City of Jersey City, and all the organizations, arts groups and performers who helped to make this summer a success! Please check back next year for our 2019 Summer in the City series line-up!


Mayor Steven M. Fulop, the Jersey City Municipal Council and the Office of Cultural Affairs are pleased to present free outdoor concerts and performances across Jersey City.

There is no better way to unwind on a summer day than to the tunes of fantastic local musicians and extraordinary showcases by amazing dancers. We strive to share our community’s talents throughout all of the neighborhoods that knit us together.

All events are no-cost, family-friendly and barrier-free, so everyone can enjoy the entertainment. Information for the 2018 series will be posted in the Spring. Follow the Office of Cultural Affairs Facebook page for updates and additional information.
