Asbury Park Bazaar and Asbury Park Boardwalk have teamed up to bring you a Summer Shopping Extravaganza Sun., July 15 from noon to 6 p.m. at Convention Hall.
The Asbury Park Summer Bazaar will feature shopping from local and regional designers, makers and artists selling amazing artisan gifts, handcrafted jewelry, art, photography, home goods, clothing, kid and pet goods, vintage wares, and 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.
There will also be 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).
The 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 threads 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.
In between shopping, peruse the Bazaar’s Beauty and Wellness pop ups including Boho Hair Salon, who will be offering gorgeous beach waves, and Kinetric Wellness, who will be offering chair massages. And be sure to pop into Little Detour’s Vintage Photo Booth Trailer, grab a silly prop, and bring home a special Summer Bazaar photo strip to remember an awesome day in Asbury Park!
“There’s something for everyone at the Asbury Park Summer Bazaar,” said Jenny Vickers Chyb, Founder & Event Organizer of the Asbury Park Bazaar. “From 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, as well as support and meet local makers, artists and musicians at the Bazaar.
The Anchor’s Bend will also be featuring a special Summer Bazaar Cocktail Tasting and Menu: Choose either a Marmalade and Bay Leaf Washed Gin and Tonic or a Watermelon Shrub Spritz, as well as taste their new Pineapple Jalapeno Honey, Red Bell Pepper, and other house made syrups! Pair your Summer C ocktail with a choice of a Grilled Chicken Taco or Tuna Wantachos.
