You know it’s more than just oysters, right? The 2018 Asbury Park Oysterfest is set for September 7th through September 9th.

Let’s get right into the food, shall we? You know my rule when it comes to food festivals…go hungry and pace yourself. You’ll be able to sample a variety of seafood and other traditional festival fares from over 25 vendors including Local 130 Seafood, Empanada Guy, Dainty Donuts, Simply Southern, Kona Ice Cream, Torta Truck, Louie Linguini, Gourmet BBQ and so much more. Mouth watering yet?

You need to wash it down at the Asbury Park Beer Tent featuring beers from the Asbury Park Brewery. Wine lovers need to sample Tavernello, the number 1 wine in Italy. The three-day culinary event includes vendors selling unique merchandise you won’t find anywhere else, music and prizes.
