On a broadcast held on March 13, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced the North to Shore Festival. 

The North to Shore Festival is a three-weekend festival held in three major Jersey cities: Atlantic City, Asbury Park, and Newark.

This is not your ordinary summer music festival as it highlights all the talent, diversity, and creativity Jersey has to offer through music, comedy, film, and technology. The North to Shore Festival was created to celebrate Jersey’s legacy hand in hand with the vision expressed by Governor Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy. 

The North to Shore Festival will bring together 50+ venues across each of the three locations, including:

  • Boardwalk Hall
  • Playground Pier
  • The Tropicana
  • Asbury Lanes
  • The Wonder Bar
  • The Prudential Center
  • And More!

Each venue holds a different variety of events including conversational panels, stand-up shows, keynote speakers, art classes, workshops, interactive exhibits, concerts, and film screenings. It would not be a Jersey showcase without Jersey artists, each city showcases Jersey’s finest talent.
