2014 Special Events

Rock the Reservoir

Come enjoy a great afternoon of music and art at Jersey City’s own Lincoln Inn, supporting the Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance efforts. We look forward to you joining us for a musical cornucopia of Rock, Roots, Blues, Jazz and Americana featuring some of Jersey City’s favorite performers. And please, don’t forget your dancing shoes! Your ongoing participation and contributions are what makes it all worthwhile as we begin another year of Reservoir activities. Thank you all so much!
