Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla of Hoboken, N.J. and the Hoboken Business Alliance announced October 6, 2022, the return of the Hoboken Harvest Festival, an annual fall celebration for Hoboken youth put on hold in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

The festival will return to Pier A Park on Oct. 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. offering free activities to Hoboken youth, including a trackless train, pumpkin patch, petting zoo, hay maze, pony rides, live music, and more, a press release from Mayor Bhalla’s office said.

For the first time this year, Harvest Festival will also incorporate a crafts fair and market along the waterfront walkway from First Street to Fourth Street from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The market came to fruition utilizing vendors from the Fall Arts and Music Festival, which was cancelled this year due to the remnants of Hurricane Ian.

“I am excited to welcome back the Hoboken Harvest Festival this year so our families, friends, and neighbors can gather together again to celebrate the fall,” Mayor Bhalla is quoted saying in the press release.  “This year’s festival is back and better than ever, thanks to the partnership of the Hoboken Business Alliance ensuring its successful return. I encourage everyone to come and enjoy the live music and festivities on our waterfront on October 22.”

The Americana Family Jamboree, Zydeco Revelators, and Rockness Music, among others, will perform throughout the day. For more information visit hobokennj.gov, and to volunteer contact Cultural Affairs Administrator Geri Fallo at gfallo@hobokennj.gov.
