Jellyfish Festival, September 4 -5, 2021

Bands in the Sand are FREE this year. Make sure to reserve your free tickets

Free concerts for 2 unbelievable days and nights.  Sponsors have made these concerts free so take advantage of the opportunity and come party at the beach, in the sand, on the ocean, with unlimited beverages during the Shore Craft Beer Fest and lots of options for “by the glass” consumption.  Shore Craft Beer is bringing lots of different local craft beverages to the beach and offering one ticket for all the beverages you care to drink.  They focus on local craft beer, but are also offering wine, hard seltzers, Hoop Tea, mead, craft cider and more.  $65 will get you 4 hours of unlimited tastings, a t-shirt, a commemorative pint glass (to the first 1200 attendees) and pizza.  If you are a later riser and would rather show up at 1, you can still get unlimited tastings and a commemorative pint glass (if you are in the first 1200 attendees) for 3 hours.



Beers (& Beverages) on the Beach, September 4, 12 – 4

We had to repeat this message as one of the best parties all year.  Just because it’s part of Jellyfish only makes this party that much better! Did we say all you care to drink? That certainly makes the party fun when you are listening to live music and the sound of the ocean for four hours.  Located just off the boardwalk, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to get 4 hours of unlimited tastings, a t-shirt, a commemorative pint glass (to the first 1200 attendees)and pizza for only $65.  In today’s post COVID world, this is a bargain you won’t want to pass up! Get your tickets now! 

All you care to drink for 3 hours on Saturday will include a pint glass for the first 1200 attendees.  ONLY $45! Get your tickets now! 

Drinks offered:  Local Craft Beer, wine, hard seltzer, mead, craft cider, and more

Beards at the Beach 4 Competition, East Coast Championship October 9th


Beards aren’t just for pirates anymore

No, it’s not a pirate event. It’s a fundraiser by a bunch of bearded guys who want to have fun and raise money for good causes.  Beards at the Beach 4 will be at Seacret’s so not much more needs to be said about having a party.  There will be a 50/50 raffle, silent auction and much more!

The music goes on for days.  Wednesday KIX and the Great White will kick off with a free show.  George Thorogood and the Destroyers and Fought will play Thursday.  Friday brings Bret Michaels and Tesla.  Saturday Kid Rock takes the stage.  If that doesn’t add up to a great party on the beach, we don’t know what would!
