Ocean Fun Days

UPDATE: Ocean Fun Days is Going Virtual!

Given the current situation surrounding COVID-19, the Ocean Fun Days (OFD) committee along with its sponsors have ultimately decided to hold an ALL VIRTUAL event in October 2020. All OFD partners take the health and safety of our exhibitors, guests, staff, and community very seriously. Therefore, New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium and New Jersey Natural Gas recently made the very difficult decision to cancel our annual gatherings at Island Beach State Park and Sandy Hook. Stay tuned for more information regarding this year’s virtual event as details continue developing.

Ocean Fun Days is the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium’s annual public outreach event. This family friendly weekend is a great opportunity to learn about New Jersey’s coastal environment and how to act wisely to care for it. Ocean Fun Days is held in cooperation with its founding partner and lead sponsor, New Jersey Natural Gas and others including NOAA, NJDEP Division of Parks and Forestry, Gateway National Park – Sandy Hook, and the Asbury Park Press.

***Ocean Fun Days 2020, originally scheduled for May 16-17, will now be held VIRTUALLY in October. Please stay tuned for more updates***
