Columbus Day weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 10-11, 1:00-5:00 p.m.
The summer may be over, but Pier Village, Long Branch’s premium oceanfront development, continues the fun with its inaugural Pier Fest 2015. The outdoor festival will take place at Festival Plaza and throughout Pier Village over the Columbus Day weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 10-11, between 1-5pm both days. It will feature fun for all ages, with sidewalk sales, live music, vendors, crafters, kids activities and more. Pier Fest is rain or shine and free to the public.
The Pier Village shops will offer discounts and specials in their sidewalk sales. The Festival Plaza will feature several vendors, crafters and other exhibitors. There will be DJ entertainment, as well as live music from talented local performers. On Sunday, WRat Radio will present a free outdoor concert. And of course you can enjoy the great food offerings at the Pier Village restaurants.
The event is organized in partnership with Jersey Shore Premiere Events, which brings the experience of having produced a variety of events in New Jersey, including business events, fashion shows, food festivals, trade shows and more. Chris Fotache, who came up with the idea of the Pier Fest, said: “I love the Pier Village, with the boardwalk, the beach, the stores and all the great restaurants. It felt like the perfect location to bring a major outdoor festival in the fall. That is a great time to be at the Jersey Shore.” Festival organizer Rosa Davis, a former boutique owner herself, added: “The businesses at Pier Village are open year-round, not just during the summer months. Pier Fest is a perfect opportunity to experience all Pier Village has to offer…a great place to shop, dine, live and play all year long!”
