Welcome to Yoga Fest 2019!

What is Yoga Fest? 

In June of 2018,  Jivamukti Yoga Jersey City teamed up with the
Jersey City HDSID and Jersey City Cultural Affairs to create the first ever Yoga Fest in Jersey City. Held during the weekend of the summer solstice in celebration of International Yoga Day, local yoga studios and instructors came together in the spirit of unity and oneness along with 500 yogis and several thousand onlookers and participated in a street event.

Yoga Fest in 2019 

In 2019 Yoga Fest Jersey City is evolving and expanding into an event that will attract thousands of people from near and far.
Additions for 2019 are as follows: 

• Second Music Stage with continuous music throughout the day

See all the entertainment acts here.

• Microworkshop Tent
• Vegan Food Trucks
• More Vendor Booths
• Kids and Family Yoga Area

A special yoga workshop will also take place Sunday June 23 @11am at Jivamukti Yoga Center Jersey City with Yogeswari, a headline international yoga teacher and special musical guests. 

Learn more about Yogeswari here. 

Yoga Fest Jersey City is designed to Celebrate Unity Through Yoga in Jersey City as well as to establish Jersey City as a yoga destination. We believe it is possible to have everyone come together and work in harmony. Yoga is a positive force that can unify us all in a fragmented world.

The Producers

Jivamukti Center Jersey City and the Jersey City Historic Downtown Special Improvement District have teamed up to produce Yoga Fest Jersey City and VegFest NJ. Special thanks goes out to Jersey City’s Dept. of Cultural Affairs and the Mayor’s office for assisting in setting up and sponsoring this event.

We have significantly expanded the event for 2019 with many new offerings and we believe that Jersey City will be a destination for yogis and like-minded people from around the world.

Our corporate sponsors are vital to the success of this event.  Without them, we would be unable to bring this dream to reality. Please support their businesses.

Vendor Booths

Vendor Booths 

In 2018, Yoga Fest Jersey City had approximately 30 vendors with booths located at the Grove Street Plaza. In 2019, vegan food and food trucks will be added and vendors will be moved into the Pedestrian Zone of Newark Avenue. Food trucks will remain at the Grove St Plaza. This will  allow for  better integration between street activities and vendors.

Products and services must be yoga related and can include body work, henna tattoos, yoga supplies, jewelry, books, wellness and personal training. All products and services must be vegan and eco friendly. Please request a vendor letter for further details. 

Vegfest NJ is partnering with us this year to bring in the addition of vegan food and additional products to Yoga Fest. Please go to the link below to fill out a vendor request form.
