New Jersey’s largest Sailing Festival will be returning with the ‘wind-in-our-sails’ on Saturday, September 7th, 2024 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, and Philadelphia.
Sailfest NJ casts off at 10am with fun, food and festivities all day including two different Sail Race Regattas as well as the great live music, art, crafts, vendors, raffles, food trucks, beer, wine, kids activities, and other nautical things which thousands of Sailfest NJ fans across the region have grown to love for over 30 years! At Noon there is also a special 9-11 Reflection Ceremony to honor first responders and those lost during the tragic attacks on 9-11.
So get ready to ‘hoist your sails’, start following our Sailfest NJ Facebook Page, and consider helping us out as a sponsor or volunteer.
