Arts & Entertainment

  • pirates

Ocean County offers diverse year-round entertainment. During most summer nights, bring a beach chair or blanket to enjoy outdoor concerts. Also offering boat festivals, regattas, and juried fine arts and crafts shows abound, many held along the scenic rivers or bay fronts. Enjoy informal dining at a chili cook-off or seafood festival or perhaps browse through the fine art galleries.
