Jazz Festival in Jersey City


If you live in Jersey City and have a passion for jazz, chances are you’ve heard of the Riverview Jazz Fest.  The festival began as a small concert in Jersey City in 2012 and now produces over 100 shows a year for the community.  This year, the festival runs until June 9th and you don’t want to miss out on these events happening right outside The Beacon.

Madame Claude Bis – one of our favorite French restaurants in Jersey City will be hosting an evening of live jazz with resident band Manouche Bag from 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm.


June 7th

White Eagle Hall – This beautiful venue is home to some of the best concerts in the tri-state area.  Purchase tickets here to see Red Baraat, a pioneering band from Brooklyn, NY.  Their June 2018 album release “Sound The People”, hit the top 10 on the World Music Charts in Europe.
