Hoboken Announces Inaugural Waterfront Arts Gala

Hoboken, NJ - Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

Mayor Bhalla on Wednesday announced Hoboken’s inaugural Waterfront Arts Gala to benefit the City’s Cultural Affairs trust and support the arts community in Hoboken. The Gala will take place on Monday, June 25 from 7-9 p.m. along the waterfront walkway on Sinatra Drive between 11th and 12th Streets.

“I am personally excited about this event and look forward to it taking place year after year,” said Hoboken Mayor Ravinder S. Bhalla. “Art is sadly not given the support it deserves, considering the role it plays in enriching our lives. I’m especially glad that this event will show off our beautiful waterfront while supporting public arts initiatives.” Tickets to the gala are $100 and can be purchased at www.hobokennj.gov/register. Each ticket comes with a VIP seat to the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s concert in Maxwell Place Park on June 28. The first 100 tickets sold also come with a voucher for two free tickets to a New Jersey Symphony Orchestra concert for the 2018/2019 season. The event includes a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction. Cultural Affairs is not funded through the City budget and depends on events like the Gala to finance events like the annual Harvest Festival and Movies Under the Stars. The Gala will be cocktail-style, with various sponsors providing food and beer, wine, and liquor tastings. They include:

  • Anthony Davids
  • Del Frisco’s Grille
  • GFG Bakery Café
