There will be two separate locations, Tip Seaman County Park & Tuckerton Seaport, both locations conveniently accessible by free shuttle bus service. It will be a fantastic weekend filled with hunting supplies, displays, contests, music, food, antique collectible decoys, and more.

This year, marking the 40th anniversary, the festival is dedicated to our friend German Georgieff. German Georgieff is Chief Naturalist at Ocean County's Wells Mills Park in Waretown and the Old Time Barnegat Bay Decoy and Gunning Show coordinator. Mr. Georgieff has been with the County for 31 years and is approaching retirement and we wish him all the best and thanks for all his work with the Ocean County Parks System.
