The annual three-day event, which traditionally draws tens of thousands of visitors, and at least one good downpour, to the natural amphitheater in Red Bank’s Marine Park, is packing up and moving to Monmouth Park racetrack, forced out by a riverside construction project that town officials couldn’t guarantee would be finished in time for the early June event.
This year’s edition has been pared down to two days Saturday, June 5 and Sunday, June 6 and rechristened as the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Festival. It will be held in a parking lot just outside the the entrance to the Oceanport horse-racing mecca.
Whether the festival returns to Red Bank is unknown, organizers tell redbankgreen. More →
