The Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation's Summer Festival Series is the 2011 winner of the Discover Jersey Arts’ People’s Choice Award for “Best Music Festival.” Each date in the series features crowd-pleasing jazz and blues musicians, along with food, crafters and activities for the entire family. Please bring lawn chairs and blankets for seating and dogs are allowed on leash. A beer and wine garden presented by Langunitas Brewing Co. and Señor Sangria will be present at the Point Pleasant venue. The festivals are free to the public and all ages are welcome to attend.
