The History of the All Points West Festival

The festival’s name is inspired by the historical events that occurred at Liberty State Park, Ellis Island and the Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal (CRRNJ) located on the festival site.

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the now abandoned Central Railroad Station at Liberty State Park served as the gateway for immigrants on their journey into the United States as they embarked across the country to ALL POINTS WEST. The immigrants of Northern, Southern, and Eastern Europe purchased tickets and boarded these trains on the CRRNJ, which then took them to their new homes throughout the United States.

The Terminal essentially served these immigrants as an opportunity to the realization of their hopes and dreams of a new life in America.
