Best Summer Events in June 2024 in Sea Isle City, New Jersey

After the 2024 summer season kicks off on Memorial Day weekend, South Jersey residents and vacationers can look forward to events and activities every weekend through September.

Before we live in the digital world where anything and everything can be found online, I remember a time when people would drive to every town on the South Jersey shore to pick up event calendars. Families would hang these event calendars on the refrigerator so everyone in the house could see what was going on each weekend.

One of South Jersey's coastal communities known for its events and activities each summer is Sea Isle City. Located off Exit 17 of the Garden State Parkway, Sea Isle City has been named one of the best coastal towns for a summer weekend getaway in New Jersey.
