Who says summer fun has to come with a big price tag? Load up your calendar with 60 free events taking place throughout June in New Jersey. As the days get longer, under-the-stars concerts, movies, and other activities fill the evenings without emptying wallets. Kick back at evening events like 2nd Annual Under Cover Music Fest, Union County Summer Arts Festival, Summit Street Sounds, and Jenkinson's Movies on the Beach.
Spend time outdoors at local community events with no admission fees, such as Garwood Rocks, Summit Family Fun Night, 5th Annual Bayonne Hometown Fair, and Nutley Father's Day Street Fair. You can even get a jump start on Independence Day at Scotch Plains' annual fireworks event.
And it's that time of year to head to the shore. Stop by beachy events like Sea Isle City's Skimmer Festival, 3rd Annual National Marina Day, and North Wildwood Italian-American Festival.
