The City of Jersey City, Mayor Steven M. Fulop, the Jersey City Municipal Council and the Office of Cultural Affairs are pleased to present Summer in the City, a free outdoor concerts and performances series happening across Jersey City throughout the summertime.

All events are no-cost, family-friendly and open to the public, so residents of every age are welcome to enjoy live entertainment in every corner of the city!
