Labor Day was established as a national tribute to the contributions that American workers have made to strengthen the well-being of the country. Over time, the holiday evolved from simply being a labor union celebration to being an unofficial celebration for the end of summer.
This is no different in New Jersey. Labor Day in New Jersey is marked with street fairs, festivals, road trips, family getaways, etc. Labor Day the last chance to do something exciting before the kids are back to school and everyone else is back to work.

Over the past few years, the Riverdale New Jersey Street Fair has proven to be the most popular Labor Day event in the Garden State. The NJ Street Fair boasts of numerous fun activities for people across all generations. The children can enjoy various fun rides and climb rock walls while the grownups get to explore art exhibitions, enjoy numerous musical acts, and sample specialty foods. The fair is a one-day event set for the 4th of September from 10 am to 5 pm. The NJ Street Fair is open to everyone and is completely free of charge.
Hay Rides at Pope’s Farm
This is one for the kids. The Hay Rides are scheduled for every weekend between September and October. The kids will get to take leisurely rides through open pastures alongside the animals at Pope’s Farm. Later on, they get to feed and pet the animals for an extra $4. Note, however, there is a limited space on the wagon each weekend, so it would be wise to reserve a spot as early as possible for only $6.
