River Edge Events

River Edge hosts a variety of events during the year that attract residents new and old.  The main events run by the town are the 4th of July festivities and River Edge Day (1st weekend in October).  The borough also has a tree lighting ceremony in December which includes carol led by the Girls Scouts, refreshments, and a visit by Santa.

4th of July Festivities

To celebrate Independence Day River Edge hosts a few events, first of which is Music in the Park.  This event is typically held on July 3rd and features a live band, food trucks, and some local vendors.  It is a great night to get outside, spend some time with neighbors and celebrate our independence.

On the 4th of July River Edge holds its annual parade with participants form youth groups, fire departments, police departments, local officials, bands, VFW, Knights of Columbus, and more.  The parade starts at Cherry Hill School and works its way down Bogert Rd to Continental Ave and concludes at the viewing stand at Veteran’s Memorial Park.

At the conclusion of the parade is the carnival held at Veteran’s Memorial Park.  The carnival features rides for the kids, local vendors and community groups, food provided by the Ancient Order of Hibernians, and beer truck provided by the Knights of Columbus.  This is a very attended event with reunions of old River Edge neighbors throughout the park.  It is definitely not to be missed.

River Edge Day

River Edge Day is typically held the 1st weekend in October at Veteran’s Memorial Park.  It hosts local vendors, town organizations, local businesses, crafts, and food.  It is meant to foster involvement in the community and bring attention to local organizations and businesses.  The kids can make pumpkin creations or get their face painted and everyone can enjoy a hot dog or hamburger and learn more about the town.
