The 2016 season will be the best yet in Seaside Heights. It began in February with the Polar Bear Plunge and ends on New Year’s Eve with First Night Ocean County.

The summer season kicked off last month with the Jersey Shore Festival and WCBS-FM’s Scott Shannon in the Morning 2016 Summer Blast-Off show. The town was packed over the holiday weekend. Many also just enjoyed the first two weekends of June, a slightly quieter time before the summer season goes into overdrive once schools close and the vacations begin.

Now, stayed tuned for a diverse array of exciting major and weekly events, including free concerts, bonfires, movies, camping, and more! And of course, let’s not forget the bay and ocean beaches, arcades, restaurants, games of chance, and Casino Pier & Breakwater Beach.

You can see all events — along with lodging, entertainment, dining, and more information — here. And, you can always take a peek at what’s happening in Seaside Heights on the live cam here.


Seaside Heights: Clean beaches that are continually voted some of the best at the shore, delicious restaurants, family friendly entertainment, and a boardwalk that will make anyone smile. 

“Your home for family fun since 1913!”

So whether it’s crabbing off the pier, relaxing on the beach, enjoying a drink while watching a live band, dining at one of the restaurants, testing your luck at a game of chance, flying down a waterslide, going for a thrill on a Casino Pier ride, or simply strolling the boards, come join us this weekend!

And now, this weekend’s featured events… Enjoy Father’s Day here!

Did you know? From “The gas and lights were put in during 1912 and the Boulevard and streets were put in during 1913. Many of the streets were still dirt roads at that time. The lighting was put in by the Borough of Seaside Heights and the Water by the Peninsula Water Company.”
