We have some very important updates regarding the 33rd Annual Belmar New Jersey Seafood Festival. 

Town officials are relocating the seafood festivies from being right near the beach on Ocean Avenue to downtown Belmar. Food vendors will be located in the Belmar Plaza parking lot and market vendors will be set up between 8th and 10th avenues.

The idea behind this relocation is to better control the cost for festival attendees.

Now, will it be as enticing to Jersey Shore residents without the ocean view? I guess time will tell but I think we all can appreciate that town officials are trying to make this event more affordable so all can attend.

The festival is scheduled to take place from Friday, May 17th to Sunday, May 19th. Take a look at the hours below:

Friday May, 17th from 4pm to 8pm

Saturday May 18th: 11am to 8pm

Sunday May 19th: 11am to 6pm

Admission to the actual festival will be free but food at each individual vendor will be for sale.
