The Festival of the Sea
Beginning in 1975, Point Pleasant Beach holds their annual Festival of the Sea. It takes place every September and is the town's way of marking the end of summer. Primarily, this festival is a food festival. Local restaurants and vendors set up booths and stations and offer crab cakes, shrimp, paella, lobster and other types of seafood. Although most of the food served at the festival is seafood, non-seafood options are also available.
Various musical acts and dance troupes perform on a main stage. Throughout the festival's grounds, craft and clothing vendors sell merchandise. Because it is the end of the summer, visitors can also find many sales at the local clothing stores. Admission to the festival is free. Food and drinks must be purchased inside the grounds.
