The Festival will promote the ecological, historical, social and economic resources of Barnegat Bay by bringing together academic institutions, volunteer groups, commercial fishermen and local restaurants to highlight their efforts that revolve around the Bay.

The first event held on July 23rd included many participants handing out literature and samples to explain all areas of Barnegat Bay. The booths were attended by many knowledgeable individuals ready to answer questions and share their knowledge about the Bay.

The first of the local restaurants to participate in the CELEBRITY CHEF showdown was Chef Mike’s ABG of South Seaside Park and the samplings that were served by two gracious young ladies were absolutely delicious. What can August 20th hold???

The last event and the CELEBRITY CHEF showdown will be held on Saturday, October 12th, 11am to 5pm.  MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! check this website for updates.
