Things To Do with Kids in New Jersey this Weekend, June 8-9, 2019

Feel like fair-hopping this weekend? The second weekend of June is packed with summery fairs of all kinds, spotlighting books, history, culture, and even fairies.

Step back in time at Civil War Weekend, or explore Spanish art and culture at Feria de Sevilla. There's something for readers of all ages to enjoy at the Maplewood- South Orange Book Festival, while little ones can spread their wings at The New Jersey Fairy Fair. Strawberry festival season continues at several farms throughout NJ, and local festivities are happening this weekend in Bayonne, Glassboro, Montclair, and Montvale.
