The Largest Fireworks Display in the State

The Fifth Annual Jersey City Freedom & Fireworks Festival promises to be an incredible community event attended by more than 100,000 revelers from the metropolitan area. The epic full-day affair is taking place at Exchange Place on the waterfront in Jersey City, NJ, for the second year. The City is gearing up with activities and excitement for the entire family. Plans are in the works!

The Festival will culminate with an extraordinary pyrotechnic performance by Grucci set against a stunning backdrop of the striking New York City skyline. Due to the large crowds, attendees are encouraged to download the Fireworks by Grucci app onto their smartphones, which will allow them to hear music set to the fireworks display.

All media wishing to cover the event must make a reservation with the City of Jersey City. For more information or questions, email the Jersey City Office of Cultural Affairs at
