Fall on the Hudson coast is a truly stunning time of year. As temperatures drop and leaves change color, you may find yourself wanting to get outside and enjoy the weather. Luckily, there’s always something going on near the Hudson, and I have the perfect list of Gold Coast fall events that you won’t want to miss.
LSC After Dark: Bugs, Bacon & Beer
Ever wondered what happens at the Liberty Science Center after dark? Now you can find out! On September 19th, come explore a side of the LSC that you’ve never seen before, featuring plenty of bacon and beer!
This premiere Jersey City festival features plenty of fun for all ages. Come sample some local craft beer and gourmet bacon, all while learning more about science. LSC staff will be on hand at their “bug buffet” station, which features edible bugs for you to try. This is a perfect event for thrill-seekers, but don’t worry—bug tasting is optional!
Hoboken Fall Arts & Music Festival
Are you ready to discover over 300 local artists, musicians, local businesses, and restaurants? They’ll all be in one place at the Hoboken Fall Arts & Music Festival. This annual celebration is one of my favorite Gold Coast fall events!
On September 29th, come check out all that downtown Hoboken has to offer. You can’t miss the live performances by Remember Jones, The Schramms, and more! Plenty of artisans will be selling all kinds of arts and crafts, so be sure to support local businesses while you’re there.
Bayonne Bergen Point Fall Festival
Ready for one of the biggest community get-togethers of the season? Be sure to check out the Bayonne Bergen Point Fall Festival! This annual event is hosted by local Bergen merchants, and it’s sure to be a great time for residents of all ages.
On October 19th, join your neighbors for live music, face painting, and great food just a stone’s throw away from the Bayonne Bridge. If you have a four legged friend, be sure to partake in the dog costume contest, too!
Jersey City Fall Half Marathon
Whether you’re a seasoned runner or are looking to get in shape, the Jersey City Fall Half Marathon is a great opportunity to support a good cause. This is an exclusive opportunity to run (or jog!) through stunning Lincoln Park. You’ll be able to trek across plenty of paved sidewalks, bridges, and near historic monuments. Best of all, proceeds from the run go towards local charities.
Registration includes a t-shirt, medal, and a post race snack. Now is the time to start training—the race begins at 8 AM on October 27th!
