Best Things To Do in New Jersey in June With Kids

As the school year comes to a close and summer makes its big debut, we're finding our June calendar is exploding with outdoor activities. Big-time festivals make a 2021 comeback, including New Jersey Renaissance Faire and New Jersey State Fair. It's a month of fruity fun with the Red, White & Blueberry Festival, plus many strawberry-picking opportunities.

June also marks the start of weekly outdoor summer entertainment, like outdoor movies statewide and Jenkinson's Fireworks at Dark.

You can always find more fun in our Event Calendar, and in our Summer Fun Guide for NJ Kids, including where to find the best water spraygrounds in the state. Read on for 16 of our favorite family events of the month. Enjoy the start of summer, and happy June!
