4th of July Food Vendors
Hoboken will be buzzing!
Details are still being finalized at City Hall – but it appears that Hoboken is doing something to accommodate visitors (and capitalize on) the Macy’s July 4th Fireworks Spectacular on the Hudson!

Not a “Street Fair” – but a “Food Fair!”
There were some rumblings about a street fair being organized to coincide with this year’s fireworks frenzy – but word on the street is, that it’ll just involve food vendors.
Apparently, along Sinatra Drive (stretching from Pier A Park – all the way to Maxwell Place) – food vendors have been invited to participate and sell their goods. Cost is around $500 to setup for the evening – and the money raised by the city will help pay for the expenses of the day. At this time, I heard that about 20 vendors have signed on so far.
Additionally, the city is gearing up to make sure that all safety concerns are covered, including a mobile triage unit from Hoboken University Medical Center along the waterfront and cooling stations. While Sinatra Drive will be closed to public vehicular traffic, the city is ensuring that an 18-foot wide path is left clear, so that fire and emergency vehicles can pass if necessary.
If you’re a food vendor and want to participate, call the Hoboken Cultural Affairs office at 201-420-2207.
[Note: These are all tentative details at the moment, and are subject to change. A formal announcement will come as we get closer to the 4th.]
