New Jersey’s July 4th Celebration
July 4 @ 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Mayor Steven M. Fulop, the Jersey City Municipal Council, and the Office of Cultural
Affairs join Exchange Place Alliance to announce Flo Rida as this year’s headliner for Jersey City’s Fourth of July celebration!
Shaquille O’Neal aka DJ Diesel and Funk Flex will each DJ their own sets prior to Flo Rida taking the stage.
Jersey City’s Independence Day celebration has become a premier daylong event, attracting A list talent since Mayor Fulop resurrected the event and grew it into one of the largest July 4th festivals in the region, drawing crowds of 150,000 people from all over the tristate area.
Following the world-class music performances live from the stage, fireworks will illuminate the Jersey City sky with the unparalleled backdrop of the Manhattan skyline. Jersey City’s fireworks – conducted by Guinness World Record holder, Fireworks by Grucci – will be launching from two barges located in the middle of the Hudson River with a large viewing area this year. Spectators can watch the fireworks show along the Hudson River Walkway, from the north field at Liberty State Park, and most overlook areas in The Heights.
