Friday the 13th Celebration

He's baaaaaack...

In Blairstown, New Jersey, Friday the 13th is a local holiday dedicated to celebrating Blairstown's second favorite son -- Jason Voorhees!

At the Blairstown Museum, we have worked hard to provide movie fans with an amazing experience on Friday July 13th, which includes a movie exhibit; trolly tours to authentic movie locations; a Slash and Shop Marketplace featuring movie inspired merchandise by local artists and crafters; a free Crystal Lake Photo Booth and much, much more.

Be sure to look around, you never know where the real life Jason is lurking...

Celebration Details & Information

Friday the 13th

Did you know that Blairstown's Historic District is featured in the 1980 horror film Friday the 13th? It's true! Join us every Friday the 13th as we celebrate Blairstown's second favorite son, Jason Voorhees.

Take photos in front of iconic movie locations such as the Blairstown Museum building; enjoy exhibits which include autographed memorabilia, Tom Savini's "Jason" reproduction, and the original DINER letters. Plus take advantage of a 13% slashing discount on every souvenir shop purchase!

Museum Admission

Admission to the Blairstown Museum is always free -- even on Friday the 13th! While we pack a lot of punch into our small space, the fact is that it is a relatively small space. On Friday the 13th, there may be a waiting period before entering the museum. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Get ready to get your Ki Ki Ki Ki... Ma Ma Ma Ma... on!

Slash and Shop Marketplace

Public Parking

For your convenience, Friday the 13th visitor parking will be located at the township field, located directly behind the Blairstown Diner and Alpine Meats & Deli. When entering Blairstown, please follow the signs to access the parking lot, which will be managed by the North Warren Regional Marching Band Parents Association. There will be a small $5, cash only, fee per vehicle.

In addition to being the New Jersey and National Group 3A 2013 Champions, the NWR Marching Band is a really dedicated and hardworking group of kids. 100% of your parking fee will go directly towards the NWR Marching Band and will help the kids fund their trip to Disney. Please be extra generous as you are entering and exiting the parking lot and show them some Friday the 13th love!

Blairstown's Historic District is relatively small, so the burden of walking from this lot to the Blairstown Museum, Roy's Hall, and your favorite eateries and shops will not be a problem. Please follow the signs from the parking lot to the township approved crosswalk, and be safe when crossing Route 94.
