Long Branch Bazaar will feature shopping from local and regional vendors selling handcrafted and vintage goods, alongside a rotating selection of artists and DJs at The Whitechapel Projects (WCP) in Long Branch.

“We are so excited to launch our new Bazaar at The Whitechapel Projects in Long Branch,” said Jenny Vickers Chyb, founder of Asbury Park Bazaar and Long Branch Bazaar. “The location is a perfect home for us, as we celebrate local makers, music and art and WCP is a creative and versatile venue focused on food, drink, performances, exhibitions and other forms of artistic expression.”

Long Branch Bazaar will take place Saturday & Sunday, June 15 and 16 (Father’s Day Weekend) and June 22 and 23 from noon to 5 p.m. Event-goers can enjoy a curated selection of makers, designers, artists and collectors, as well as art shows, a vintage photo booth trailer, henna tattooing, tarot card reading, DJs, and delicious food & libations provided by WCP. Vendors will be selling products ranging from handcrafted jewelry, art and photography and clothing to candles, home goods, beauty and grooming products, and more.

“There will be something for everyone at the Long Branch Bazaar — shop local vendors, listen to great music, and enjoy a photo booth by Little Detour. Come out with the whole family for a day of fun. We hope to see you there!” said Jennifer Chavez, event organizer of Asbury Park Bazaar and Long Branch Bazaar.

The Long Branch Bazaar will feature a selection of amazing local artists who will have their work on display in the Courtyard each weekend including Modern Animals, Offshore Artwork, Maggie Brown, Sea Black Prints, Derwood Paint Co. and Spring Whitaker.

“It would not be one of our Bazaars without bringing the talented artists we have been showcasing for the past five years,” said David Sincox, art curator at Long Branch Bazaar. “In the nature of our Asbury events, we will continue to bring some of the most unique local artists to Whitechapel Projects. They have invited us with open arms to make our Bazaar not only a weekend with local vendors, but also let us curate an amazing art show.”

Shop, enjoy art, music, drinks and food at the Long Branch Bazaar at WCP, which includes a restaurant featuring French country cuisine inspired by local ingredients and products, a nanocraft brewery, courtyard, and 8,000-square-foot outdoor beer garden with bar and a wood-burning pizza oven.
