There isn’t a bad seat in the house at the Jersey Shore during 4th of July celebrations. The fireworks go on for days, parades and festivals line the beaches, and there’s a concert or activity around every corner. Dive into the thick of things and wander the festivities or rent a beach house for the holiday. Whatever your style, our New Jersey event catering service has got you covered in the fine foods department.


From Cape May to Asbury Park, Independence Day festivals line the New Jersey Beaches. On the North Shore, Long Branch’s 4th of July party dubbed Oceanfest is the largest gathering in the state. An all-day event complete with live music, sand sculptures craft fair, food vendors, and family games. Stone Harbor also hosts a day of festivities which includes the Phillies Home Run Derby, a sand sculpture competition, and a bike decorating contest.

Wow your friends and family with your very own catered meal as they cruise the Jersey Shore. Our chefs at Foodini can prepare and deliver a gourmet meal with everything you need to enjoy your holiday on the water.


Each year, firework displays begin up and down the Jersey Coast a few days before the 4th, and they don’t end until a few days afterward. The most spectacular shows are on the night of the 4th, so plan where you want to be ahead of time. Stone Harbor and Asbury Park both put on large firework shows once the sun has set. Other notable firework shows include Wildwood as a part of their Independence Day celebration and Cape May following the Lower Township Independence Festival.
