Spring Festivals for New Jersey Kids and Families

It's time to kiss winter goodbye and spring into the outdoor festival and fair season. After last year's festival season came to a pandemic halt, some annual favorites make a long-awaited comeback in 2021. From food festivals to Earth Day celebrations, these gatherings are a great way to spend time outdoors and experience all the spring has to offer. Be sure to click through to each event's website for social distancing and other safety protocols.

For more spring action, check out our Spring Fun Guide for New Jersey Kids.

Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do. Please plan your outings in advance as many venues require timed-entry tickets or reservations to limit crowd size.
