San Gennaro Festival

The aroma of sausage and peppers, zeppoles, fried calamari and more fill the air as Belmar's Main Street Little Italy for a weekend for the Feast of San Gennaro. Traditional Mass and Parade, with statue of San Gennaro's donations dedicated to the FoodBank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties. Delicious foods and wines, live entertainment, dancing in the street, vendors, crafters and more!

The festival is taking place between 10th and 13th avenue. The train station is right off of 10th. We will be meeting here in the parking lot. I will have a sign that has MEETUP on it. Please meet here between 11 and 12. This half hour window will give everyone plenty of time to find parking, get to meet eachother etc. After 12:00 we will head into the festival.

    Hey guys, I will be there with another group also but will be leaving the plaza at 11:15. I will be wearing a maroon colored shirt with a wolf on the front. So, if you see me stop, say hi and introduce yourself.

    Jamie, you are not coming?? Will you ask some of the people who will be meeting/greeting to bring a sign (or balloon) so we can find each other? It appears it will be a busy place.

    Michael, I used google maps for directions to "Belmar Plaza" because I could get no exact street address for the train station.

    Hello all. So I am organizing this event. Reading the comments below... Is there some confusion about the dates and information I put above? Because on my end it definitely says Saturday Sept 20 from 11-5. And this is the correct date. Not Sunday. I originally had Sunday but changed it 4 months ago. Please let me know if I need to change something or clarify.

  • Rene K.

    Ok thank you !! for the right date .
