I hate to admit that we have already reached August but, unfortunately we will all soon have to face that summer is starting to wind down. Many of us like to do one last hoorah whether it be a weekend getaway, a day trip, or even just spending casual time with family and friends on Labor Day weekend. If you’re not sure what to plan and you are looking for some options, we have you covered! I have compiled a list of some fun-packed food inspired festivals and events occurring on Labor Day Weekend throughout New Jersey.
If you’re ready for a day at the races while getting in the classic Labor Day BBQ head on over to Monmouth Park Racetrack for the BBQ & Craft Beer Festival that will be taking place both Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend. A beer garden will be set up and some of NJ’s finest BBQ establishments will be on premise for tastings, samples, and more.
Hoboken residents and their families and friends can kick off their Labor Day weekend by getting to know their neighbors at the Hoboken Spaghetti Dinner Block Party on Thursday August 29th. For just $20 you can enjoy a home-style Italian meal, rock out to live music and savor some great company. The event also benefits a great cause, funds will be raised for the Hoboken Ambulance Corp.
If the great outdoors and an overnight stay are what you are looking for than you need to make a reservation at the Pine Haven Campground Resort in Ocean View, NJ for their Labor Day Southern Hospitality Weekend. They are promoting the enjoyment of their sweet teas and potato parfaits that will be served. There will also be no shortage of activities with a flea market, craft fair, pool party, and even a back to school dance throughout the weekend.
Wine lovers can head over to the Jazz It Up Wine Festival in Farmingdale, NJ on Labor Day weekend. It will feature over 20 wineries and nearly 300 different locally produced wines. Food vendors and other activities will be on-site as well. Music enthusiasts can also enjoy the live Jazz music.
Lastly, go celebrate the Nordic nations’ ethnicity and culture at the 29th annual ScanFest in Budd Lake, NJ this Labor Day Weekend. This outdoor festival features Scandinavian food, performances, arts, traditions. Whether you want to celebrate your own heritage or learn more about theirs it is sure to provide for an entertaining day!
No matter what adventure you choose this upcoming Labor Day weekend, we at #SCBD wish you a fun and safe holiday!
