Oceanfest is the biggest seasonal event on the Jersey Shore — in fact, it’s the biggest Independence Day celebration anywhere in New Jersey, and it happens every July 4th in Long Branch!
Each year since 1990, crowds numbering in the hundreds of thousands have descended upon the city’s oceanfront promenade for an all-day, family friendly festival that brings together music, food, a craft sale, street fair, and of course, fireworks!
You and your family can stroll the famous beachfront, take in the wonderful views, enjoy performances by dancers, musicians, clowns and musical acts, sample from a smorgasbord of food vendors, and check out the wares of crafters from all over the Northeast. You can even see a fabulous sand sculpture, meet a familiar costumed character, and catch some cool ocean breezes.
