Located on the corner of Bergen Avenue and Virginia Avenue. The Bergen Airdome was opened prior to October 1910. Seating was provided for 1,600 on wooden benches. Standing room was allowed, which gave a total capacity for 2,300. It was operated by the Clinton Amusement Company.

This airdome was particularly successful as it had a canvas roof, enabling it to operate in inclement weather. A canvas side-wall could also be added during windy/chilly conditions.

The Bergen Airdome was still operating in 1912.
