The Festival of the Sea has been one of Point Pleasant Beach’s premier event for more than 40 years.
This Seafood festival is held downtown on both Arnold and Bay Avenues. Local restaurants and vendors provide the large crowds with delicacies such as crab cakes, shrimp skewers, paella, soups and bisques, lobster, and other seafood items. Don’t like seafood? No problem, there are plenty of other varieties of food to sample!
We also have hundreds of craft vendors featuring hard to find and unique items. For entertainment, there is a stage set up on the corner of Arnold and River Avenues that plays host to local musicians and other acts.
The festival begins in the shopping district between Rt 35 South and Rt. 35 North and goes all the way down to the Point Pleasant Boro border.

By holding the Festival of the Sea in the month of September, visitors have been treated to great weather. Also, the local businesses have a chance to offer many of there summer goods at sale prices. For more information please call 732-899-2424
