Jersey City’s 50 Star Fireworks


Don’t miss out on Jersey City’s own 50 Star Fireworks for a legendary Independence Day celebration. Also known as Jersey City’s Freedom & Fireworks Festival, it features an impressive pyrotechnic display by sixth-generation, family-owned experts Fireworks by Grucci. It takes place in Liberty State Park with Lady Liberty herself as the backdrop. Don’t forget to visit the featured Jersey City Night Market for tasty food, drinks, handcrafted goods, and live music.


Visit Ellis Island


Taking a ferry to nearby Ellis Island is the perfect way to celebrate the nation’s independence over the July 4th holiday weekend. Home to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island offers visitors an opportunity to connect with two of the country’s most significant symbols of freedom and hope. Both Ellis Island and Lady Liberty are accessible by ferry, easily boarded at nearby Liberty State Park.


Newport Independence Day BBQ


Reserve a spot on one of our fantastic rooftops here at Newport. There is no better way to have a Happy 4th than some classic holiday grilling with your loved ones. In addition to the staple menu of hot dogs, hamburgers, and corn-on-the-cob, try some new dishes like deviled eggs with fried capers & lemon. Great deviled eggs need perfectly boiled eggs. You can go classic or spice things up with crispy fried capers, chopped parsley, and olive oil. It’s a versatile dish that doesn’t require too much effort to prepare in advance.
