Enjoy the sun, sea and shopping at the Asbury Park Summer Bazaar


By Jenny Vickers Chyb

Asbury Park Bazaar and Asbury Park Boardwalk have teamed up to bring you a Summer Shopping Extravaganza that you don't want to miss! Enjoy the sun, sea and shopping at the Asbury Park Summer Bazaar happening Sunday, July 15th, noon to 6 pm at Asbury Park Convention Hall! 

The Asbury Park Summer Bazaar will feature shopping from Local and Regional Designers, Makers, & Artists selling amazing artisan gifts, handcrafted jewelry, art, photography, home goods, clothing, kid and pet goods, vintage wares, and much more. While you shop, enjoy music by DJ Prestige, a fine purveyor of funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, reggae and other assorted funky treats. Take a break from shopping and head out onto the gorgeous promenade and beach bar at The Anchor's Bend to enjoy live music with dub reggae trio High Disciple and psychedelic afro-cuban surf jazz band El Noordzo.

Want to tap into your creative side? Attend the Bazaar's Craft Workshops to learn how to paint your own pet portrait, make your own candle, or participate in a flower crown workshop followed by your very own photo shoot on the Asbury Park Boardwalk (check out the full schedule below). Our kid-friendly workshops include Kids Art Classes hosted by Riverside Art Studio. Bring your kids and they can learn how to make painted paper lanterns, beaded wind chimes, or jumbo popsicles!

Feeling energetic? Before you head to the Summer Bazaar, put on your best workout outfit and join Mettamade Yoga Events and Tara Romano of Tone and Tease for SoundOff by the Sea - a Zumba and Yoga Party with Sound Off headphones. Class is 11 am to noon at the Third Avenue Green Space on the Asbury Park Boardwalk (across from the Berkeley Hotel and adjacent to Sunset Pavilion). All levels welcome - headphones are limited so advance sign up is requested. After class, shop the local vendors at the Asbury Park Bazaar and treat yourself to something nice! 

In between shopping, peruse the Bazaar's Beauty & Wellness pop ups including Boho Hair Salon, who will be offering gorgeous beach waves. And be sure to pop into Little Detour's Vintage Photo Booth Trailer, grab a silly prop, and bring home a photo so you'll always remember how much fun you had at the Summer Bazaar.

"There's something for everyone at the Asbury Park Summer Bazaar," said Jenny Vickers Chyb, Founder & Event Organizer of the Asbury Park Bazaar. "From live music, yoga and zumba to learning a new craft and shopping from almost 50 of the best local and regional makers in the area, the event is fun for the whole family. You can enjoy the beach, stroll all the restaurants, bars and shops on the Boardwalk, and support and meet local makers, artists and musicians at the Bazaar. It's Asbury Park's Summer event of the season - you don't want to miss it!"
