Oceanfest 2022 is BACK 

It’s the biggest seasonal event on the Jersey Shore — in fact, it’s the biggest Independence Day celebration anywhere in New Jersey, and it happens every July 4th right here in Long Branch.


Each year since 1990, crowds numbering in the hundreds of thousands have descended upon the city’s oceanfront promenade from points all over the Mid-Atlantic region for Oceanfest — an all-day, family friendly festival that brings together the most memorable sights, sounds and sensations of the summer season. Not just a music or food festival; much more than a craft sale or street fair, Oceanfest combines the best parts of everyone’s favorite summertime memory — and caps it all off with the most spectacular fireworks display you’ll see anywhere along the Jersey coast. 


Applications for Craft or Food Vendors please contact Chamber Office at 732-222-0400 or

RSVP to our Facebook event and invite your friends and family to join you for this awesome day!



Please be aware of the road construction at Garden State Parkway Exit 105.  Go to the website for more information.


Dear Oceanfest Vendor,

The Long Branch Environmental Commission has notified us of the following:

As the Plastic Bag Ban legislation has now been enforced in the State of New Jersey, the Commission is looking to eliminate the use of plastics as much as possible.  They now have what they are calling a plastic bag/Styrofoam/balloon/straw free Oceanfest initiative whereby they are asking vendors and attendees to eliminate plastics in as many ways as possible.

Please do your best to help keep plastics out of the environment.

Thank you,

From the Long Branch Oceanfest 2022 Committee.
