Blairstown Fourth

Good Old-Fashioned American Fun in Blairstown, NJ

Regretfully, the Blairstown Fourth festivities normally held in Footbridge Park are canceled for 2020. We thank our committee, sponsors, vendors, judges, civic groups, advisors and volunteers for their support in years past. We thank the Blairstown Township Committee, as always, for their support and guidance. We are grateful to provide this free, family-oriented community event, and would invite your participation next year, when we will be able to gather and enjoy.
