Long Branch – Long Branch’s 24th Annual Oceanfest offers something for everyone. Delicious festival foods, handmade arts and crafts, sand sculptures, themed children’s shows and activity areas and fantastic music all set the stage for one of the Jersey Shore’s largest fireworks displays.
Oceanfest is a free, family-friendly celebration that takes place on July 4 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., rain or shine, along the half-mile stretch of oceanfront Promenade between Seven Presidents Park and Pier Village.
“Oceanfest showcases the best of Long Branch and the best of the Jersey Shore,” said Nancy Kleiberg, Executive Director of the Greater Long Branch Chamber of Commerce. “Whether you’re strolling the Promenade, sampling some great food or watching your child in awe of the fireworks, Oceanfest is summer in New Jersey!” she added.
Featured musical performances by Cashmere, Rave On, Valerie Adams & the Dimensions and Mad Satta will take place on two stages throughout the day. Children’s entertainment includes live pirate and cowboy shows, circus performers, balloon artists, strolling cartoon characters and face painters.
Oceanfest’s famous fireworks finale features a world class display by International Fireworks and begins at 9 p.m.
Oceanfest is sponsored in part by the City of Long Branch, Greater Long Branch Chamber of Commerce, Ocean Place Resort and Spa, Monmouth Medical Center, Monmouth University, Pier Village, AJD Construction, TD Bank and Comcast.
