Come Enjoy Live Music with Arts and Crafts!


Come out for a night of live music, arts, and crafts for all ages! The Jersey City Reservoir is proud to present the music of The Sensational Country Blues Wonders! who “consider themselves the only guitar/vocal duo that mixes equal parts Rockabilly, Country, and genuine guitar Gospel music with a spoonful of greasy Blues to wash it all down.” Wind down after a long week with these Wonders at the Reservoir!

The event will also feature an adventure walk through the Reservoir with environmentalist and Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance president, Steven Latham, during the event. Bring whatever camera you have along and have professional photographer, Trix Rosen, help you snap idyllic views of the Reservoir! It is the perfect time of year to take some quality photos as many plants are bearing fruit and the foliage starts to turn color!

Capture the beauty of the Reservoir with your own hands in a pastel painting or whatever medium you prefer! We will have pastels and paper to loan out (we will keep your id on hold to ensure pastels are returned so everyone has a chance to use them) for a chance to create a fantastic landscape. Bring your own art supplies and a comfy chair to create a painting in whatever medium you choose!

Create natural picture frames and take a closer look at objects all around us with microscopic digital photography! Led by P.S. #28′s Project Reservoir teams, get hands on and create phragmites picture frames and take up-close pictures of leaves, rocks, bugs, and much more! Perfect activities for kids of all ages!
