NJ DEP – The 16th annual Island Beach State Park Beach Plum Festival, a long-running tradition in the state park system, will be held on Sunday, Sept. 8, DEP Commissioner Bob Martin announced today.
The event, which serves as the largest fundraiser of the year for non-profit park partner Friends of Island Beach State Park, will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, at Ocean Bathing Area 1. There will be no fee at the gate, but a $5 parking donation is suggested to help support the festival.
The Beach Plum Festival is another event highlighting a very successful post-Superstorm Sandy summer for the state’s busiest summer park.
