Now that we are past Memorial Day Weekend, the 2024 Summer Season is officially here in South Jersey. From now until September there will be events and activities for visitors and locals to enjoy at the Jersey Shore Towns.

For over 120 years, The Wildwoods have been a hub for Regional Vacationers and South Jersey Locals to enjoy the summertime each year. Whether people come for the world-famous Wildwood Boardwalk or the free beaches, once they come to a South Jersey Shore Community there will be plenty of activities to keep you in town.

Since opening in 2018, the Byrne Plaza has been hosting numerous events every summer in the City of Wildwood. Located at the corner of Oak Avenue and Pacific Avenue, the open field and outdoor stage will again host free concerts and free family movie nights for the 2024 Summer Season.

Starting June 20th, Byrne Plaza will host Music in the Plaza every Thursday. People are invited to bring their beach chairs or blankets along with grabbing food from the nearby restaurants before the shows start at 730 pm.
