After thinking that the 2022 Hoboken Mutzfest may have been its last — it looks like this highly-anticipated event is back again for another year. The event will be held on Sunday, April 30th this year after being held in May last year for the 10th anniversary. Here at The Hoboken Girl, we are big mutz lovers, which means we’re looking forward to being able to enjoy this cheese-filled event for another year. Read on for what we know about Hoboken Mutzfest 2023.
All About Mutzfest
Mutzfest is organized by the Hoboken Family Alliance, one of the oldest Hoboken non-profits, and proceeds from the event will help fund its numerous local community initiatives, one of which is the Hoboken Bike Camp for individuals with disabilities. While in previous years it has been hosted both at indoor facilities and more recently as a ‘crawl,’ this year will be located under the 14th Street Viaduct in Hoboken — the same location as last year. The event will take place on Sunday, April 30th from 1PM-5PM.
Hoboken Mutzfest 2023 will be packed with lots of activities for the whole family. Attendees can expect to experience the usual — the cannoli-eating contest and Sinatra Sing-A-Long. There will also be live music, a beer + wine garden, and special guests appearing. There will also be Mutzfest-themed upcycled bags being sold at the event for $45 each.
Hoboken Mutzfest is a chance for the community to come together over a shared NJ love: mozzarella cheese. Last year, Mutzfest said the 2021 festival might be the last hurrah, and the organizers promised that they will find other ways to keep the mutz spirit and communal connection alive — but we are so excited it’s back for another year.
“We love the energy and community that Mutzfest has created,” Mutzfest revealed in a statement last year.
Tickets for the event can be found here. General admission to this cheese-filled day is $50. Attendees who purchased their tickets online will be on a list at the door, so don’t expect to receive a physical ticket for this event. For 21+ visitors who are feeling extra special, there is also a $100 VIP option which gets you into Mutzfest at 12PM instead of 1PM as well as grants you access to an open bar.
