There are 3 teriffic September events this weekend –
- Pearl River Auto Show
- St John Orthodox Cathedral Greek Festival
- Bergen County Fall Harvest.
It’s so nice to see the Pearl River Auto Show back. So much was cancelled last year. While Pearl River is in New York State, it’s also next to Bergen County. As a result, events there are virtually in our backyard.
Bergen County borders New York on 2 sides. The Hudson River and Manhattan are on our eastern edge. Rockland County runs across our northern border. This is why we go to Rockland County for fun and actiivites as we do New York City. We are so close to everything. Bergen County’s fabulous location is a big reason why homes here are in such demand. Let’s see what’s coming up:
Pearl River Auto Show 2021The Pearl River Auto Show is the biggest auto show in Rockland County. There will be more than 225 cars coming from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsiylvania. It’s on Sunday (Sept 19) from 9 am to 3 pm at the Central Ave Field (58 E Central Ave). The Pearl River Annual Auto Show is co-hosted by the Rockland Rodders and the Pearl River Hook & Ladder Company. Bcause the Rockland Rodders is a vintage and antique auto club, this show attracts the best of this class. I bet the Fire Department will have it’s best on display too.
St John Greek Orthodox Cathedral Greek Festival
It you want to go to a Greek Festival, this is one of the best and biggest Bergen County has to offer. It’s so big that they have shuttle buses going back and forth to the Kaplen Jewish Community Center parking lot next door. You don’t want to miss the A Taste of Greece festival.
Come this weekend to the St John Greek Orthodox Cathedral Festival at 353 East Clinton Ave in Tenafly. Times are Friday 4-11, Saturday 12-11 and Sunday 12-8. Called A Taste of Greece, you’ll find everything Greek there this weekend.
You’ll enjoy the best of Greek cuisine and culture. There are ongoing classes and events every day from wine tasting to Greek cooking to learning about Greek herbs and more. Enjoy music, dancing, Greek items for sale, a White Elephant table and, of course, delicious food. This is so much fun and attracts thousands every year.
Bergen County Fall Harvest Festival at Van Saun Park
Get ready for one of our major September events. The Bergen County Fall Harvest Festival at Van Saun Park is located at 216 Forest Ave in Paramus. Times are Friday 6-9, Saturday 10-10 and Sunday 10-8.
Put on by Bergen County, this is serious fun because it’s a combination of so many things. It’s a made up of a carnival, crafts fair, midway rides, Zumba, 4H exhibits, food trucks and more. There’s even fireworks on Saturday night. I’ve been to this annual festival and it’s so much fun. There’s a large number of food trucks, so many rides and the crafts and 4H exibits are great.
I think by now you’ll agree that we have comeing up some great September events this weekend. However there is something else that’s also very special – Dumont Day.
Dumont Day 20 2021
How about going to a town-wide event in Bergen County? Would you like to know about our local town community spirit? Then go to Dumont Day 2021 on Saturday. Held at Veterans Memorial Park (199 Pershing Ave) from 11 to 5 pm, you’ll be amazed at the turnout. It seems like the entire town comes out to enjoy the day together.
Dumont residents are fiercly proud of their town. Schools here are excellent and it’s not uncommon to see generations of families living here. Many people grow up in town and come back to raise their own family here.
You’ll see thousands at Dumont Day 2021. There will be all sorts of amusements, live music, a Beer Garden and fireworks at night. Every year there’s a broad mix of things to do and see. It’s simply a fun day where neighbors come together to celebrate their town.
So there you have it. September events this weekend are a blast no matter which one you visit. Why not go to all of them?
