BRANT BEACH, NJ - Everyone enjoys the excitement of a summer carnival.  It brings out the child in all of us.  Since 1975, St. Francis of Assisi Parish has been hosting the Festival of the Sea Carnival, annually.                                       

The Festival of the Sea begins Wednesday, August 9, and continues through Sunday, August 13.  The carnival will be open nightly (weather permitting) from 6:00 to 10:00 pm.

The Festival of the Sea came together 42 years ago as a celebration of the community.  The Festival of the Sea is held on the St. Francis Parish & Center parking lot located at 4700 Long Beach Blvd., Brant Beach, NJ.  Admission is FREE!  Don’t forget to take the LBI Shuttle to the Festival!
