DELAWARE BAY DAY
Delaware ‘Bay Day’ is the largest FREE maritime festival in New Jersey. It is held along the ‘wild and scenic’ Maurice River in the historic New Jersey fishing villages of Bivalve and Port Norris. East Point Lighthouse, located in Heislerville, NJ, is a satellite site for this event.
People LOVE Bay Day for the history it teaches, the AJ Meerwald, because it's free, the volunteers are great, it's fun for kids, the food is delicious, the people are inspiring, the music makes you move, and the fireworks are glorious.
The first Saturday in June, annually.
Join us on June 3, 2017 for our 25th Annual Delaware Bay Day!
