What is Skimmer Festival?

Skimmer Festival is Sea Isle’s largest summer festival, featuring family-friendly activities and entertainment.

Skimmer Festival is a festival in Sea Isle City, New Jersey. It was originally scheduled for June 19, 2021, but has been cancelled. The Sea Isle City Simmer Festival features 400 vendors on the promenade selling everything from sunglasses to socks to decorative crafts and jewelry. In addition to the flea market on the promenade, there is a food court at JFK and Pleasure featuring a variety of local restaurants and live entertainment at Excursion Park.

The festival will begin with a Seaside Vendor Craft Market along the oceanfront Promenade. Also, the popular Skimmer Food Court will be open in front of Excursion Park, located at JFK Boulevard and Pleasure Avenue, where a tempting selection of local delicacies and traditional festival-fare will be on sale. Meanwhile, inside Excursion Park, festival-goers will enjoy live music and a variety of free family activities. They will once again have free amusement rides from 10 am to 4 pm.


Please note that Jitney Service will be available on Saturday starting at 9am.


Skimmer Weekend in Sea Isle City is one of our favorite weekends of the year!

June is a gorgeous time of year at the Jersey shore which is why this festival by the beach always ranks high on our summer to-do list.


5 Things you need to know about Skimmer Weekend in Sea Isle City

  • Skimmer Weekend gets its name from the straw hats that Victorian-era men wore during the summer months. You may see some version of these hats at the festival.
  • Arrive early and stay late. Hit the flea market early to get a look at all your shopping options break for lunch and then go back again. At the end of the day vendors are much more willing to make a deal.
  • It’s more than a flea market. While the shopping is my favorite part there is also a full schedule of events including live entertainment, amusement rides and guided trolley tours. See below for a full listing of Skimmer Weekend events.
  • Jitneys will be up and running for the event so don’t stress about finding parking down town as it will be tough to find a spot.
  • If the promenade gets too crowded, stroll down Landis Avenue many of the local shops will be offering sales in honor of the weekend.
