Ocean County Fairs and Festivals

Nothing screams SUMMER more than a local fair or festival.  What do you think of when you hear a local fair or festival is coming? For us at Ocean County moms, it’s the chatter of adults, laughter of kids, sweet smell of a funnel cake, or the rough crunch of your tickets being passed to the attendant for a ride. Whether it’s a local fair, with homegrown local items, new tasty treats from a food truck, or just a simple stroll through in the day or night, a local fair or festival is never a disappointment and almost always puts a smile on the whole family’s face.  We have created for you a little guide with some upcoming local fairs and festivals. Check back all summer long for updates!
