“Thanks to everyone in Island Heights for sharing your community again in 2022 so that we were able to raise money to help our neighbors in need!” – Toms River Rotary
New Jersey’s largest Sailing Festival will be returning to celebrate it’s 32nd Anniversary with the ‘wind-in-our-sails’ as an “In-Person” event on Saturday, September 9th, 2023 at its usual Island Heights NJ location along the beautiful Toms River from 10 am to 10 pm.
This is a region-wide festival for families and everyone who loves boating, sailing, sailors, or anything nautical. We typically attract over 15,000 people to Toms River from throughout New Jersey, New York City, and Philadelphia.
9-11 Reflection Ceremony: Sailfest NJ casts off at 10am with a special Reflection Ceremony to honor veterans, first responders, and others lost during 9-11.
Sailfest NJ fun, food and festivities will continue all day with two different Sail Race Regattas as well as all the great music, art, crafts, vendors, raffles, food, beer, wine, kids activities, and other nautical things which thousands of Sailfest NJ fans throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New York have grown to love!
So get ready to ‘hoist your sails’, start following our Sailfest NJ Facebook Page, and consider helping us out as a sponsor or volunteer.
This free community event is organized by the Toms River Rotary Club and 100% of all proceeds benefit non profit organizations throughout the region.
