Jersey Shore Festival @ Seaside Heights

Over the past 12 years, the Jersey Shore Festival has established itself as the premier emerging artist festival on the east coast.  Artists of all ages and all genres are welcomed to Seaside Heights, to perform on our stages, network with industry professionals, and have a true Jersey Shore Experience.   The event organizer’s mission is to create an environment that allows industry VIP’s to find new talent, artists to make new contacts, and fans to find their new favorite bands.

Aside from the music, they also strive to add other entertaining events throughout the weekend, including action sports, charity events, food trucks, the JSF Vendor Village, and more.

Marsh Madness @ Barnegat Bay Marshes

Annual Barnegat Bay marsh clean-up conducted by the Junior Sailing Program of the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association (BBYRA) and Save Barnegat Bay. Each participating Yacht Club selects the youth’s favorite local marsh and plans to rally hand picked trash and debris to their coach boat and then landward to the Club or municipality for proper disposal.

In 2018, over 390 individual sailors removed 57 bags of trash from our beloved, sensitive marsh areas. All 12 clubs in the BBYRA participated! Our goal for 2019 is to host a bay-wide clean-up…including all the clubs in the south bay too!
