new in the area and trying to work out where to find events, festivals, things to do, upcoming attractions in NJ (specifically northern Jersey but the rest is also useful)

I know of facebook events and visitNJ

What else is out there ? any county specific sites ? any twitter accounts ? email lists/newsletters to be on ?

kid and family friendly would be great - but also more general sites.


thanks,
Aussie

If you are going to live in Bergen County, your local newspaper is the North Jersey Record, www.northjersey.com.

The print newspaper has a section on Friday that will tell you things going on that weekend. I'm sure the website has something similar.

Your town/local website will have things, too.

That's an excellent question. I live in Essex county and I have never known how to find out about events in other towns, such as local musical events and special film screenings. I'll see a flyer on a bulletin board or a random post on the local FB page, but more often than not I hear about the events after they've already taken place.

Also looking at the calendar section for required suburb also gives events.

eg. this one is for Hoboken
https://patch.com/new-jersey/hoboken/calendar

Fort Lee:
https://patch.com/new-jersey/fortlee/calendar

and similarly for other areas - this is very useful. enjoy !
