New Jersey’s largest Sailing Festival will be returning with the ‘wind-in-our-sails’ 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, and Philadelphia.
Sailfest NJ casts off at 10am with a special Reflection Ceremony to honor veterans, first responders, and others lost during 9-11. Then the fun, food and festivities continue all day with two different Sail Race Regattas as well as the great music, art, crafts, vendors, raffles, food, beer, wine, kids activities, and other nautical things which thousands of Sailfest NJ fans throughout the region have grown to love for over 30 years!
So get ready to ‘hoist your sails’, start following our Sailfest NJ Facebook Page, and consider helping us out as a sponsor or volunteer.
Sailfest NJ is a free community event is organized by the Rotary Club of Toms River Charitable Foundation and 100% of all proceeds benefit non profit organizations throughout the region. If you have any questions, ideas, donations or your group is interested in volunteering, please contact us.
