The special character of present day Fair Haven is rooted in its heritage as a small community closely linked to the Navesink River…. Fair Haven extends along the Navesink River and is settled between the towns of Red Bank, Little Silver, and Rumson. Fair Haven is packed with family oriented neighborhoods found tucked behind the community streets. The town is filled with local businesses, restaurants, shops and retail boutiques, and brags of a ‘first name basis’ relationship with business owners and patrons.
Fair Haven consists of approximately 6,000 people living in some 2,000 households. Of those 2,000 households, over 70% are families, and of those families, 47% have children under the age of 18 living with them. The median resident age in Fair Haven is 37. The median income for a household in the borough was $97,220, and the median income for a family was $109,760.
To truly experience the warmth and sense of community Fair Haven has, you can’t miss the annual Fireman’s Fair during the last week of August which attracts thousands of people from all over New Jersey, including noted musicians Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi.
The Fair Haven Public School district serves students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Students in grades 9-12 attend Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, together with students from Rumson.
