The Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation's Summer of Music!

First in Marine Park as the wonderful "Red Bank Jazz and Blues Festival", then a year at the Racetrack, & now we're all over Monmouth County!

... but the Festival remains the same!

This year, we have Music Everywhere!

Music Line-ups Asbury Park Point Pleasant Long Branch

Our Annual Festival is celebrated all over the north Jersey Shore, with 3
full-day festivals, in Asbury Park, Long Branch and Pt Pleasant Boro, featuring jazz, blues, food, crafts, games, good company, and plenty of family fun.

All three festivals are Free of Charge and will be held "come rain or shine".

We look forward to having you come over and join us this year to enjoy
some of the very best Jazz and Blues music around, at a festival series
which has become an award-winning New Jersey tradition.

These festivals are produced annually by a completely volunteer non-profit organization (The Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation). Proceeds from the festivals help fund our education, scholarship and outreach programs.

Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Festival has been named Favorite Music Festival 
in the 6th Annual People's Choice Awards

Jersey Shore, NJ (March 20, 2015) – The ballots were cast and the votes are now tallied, naming Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Festival as New Jersey's "Favorite Music Festival" in the Sixth Annual People's Choice Awards. The annual Awards honor the work of New Jersey's vital, vibrant and diverse arts community.

Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Festival was one of the eight arts districts/71 organizations nominated for this year's Awards—the largest number of nominees the Awards has received since its creation in 2008. Nominees for the People's Choice Awards were chosen by their peers through the Jersey Arts Marketers network, which is made up of hundreds of nonprofit arts groups across the state.

"The People's Choice Awards pays tribute to our state's incomparable cultural community and the passion of its supporters," said Jim Atkinson, director of programs and services at the ArtPride New Jersey Foundation, the statewide arts service organization that coordinates the annual awards. "All nominees should be very proud of the impact they have on not only their communities, but on their peers."

Thanks to all our 2016 Sponsors!
