About Hop Sauce
Hop Sauce Festival is, at its core, a celebration. Some celebrate amazing food and drink. Others celebrate original music. But for most of us, it’s a celebration of people, an inspiring community that enjoys delicious food from a dozen local restaurants, over 50 craft beers, fantastic headlining bands, and all that we have in common.
Our goal remains to welcome back old friends while giving folks a chance to discover Long Beach Island on a traditionally down weekend, sparking the local economy. Last year, we had thousands of people enjoying a gorgeous day. We are also very proud that a portion of the proceeds from Hop Sauce Festival benefit the Jetty Rock Foundation, our non-profit arm dedicated to improving our community through a variety of initiatives. Join us, June 2, 2018 and enjoy the heat, flavor and brews that Hop Sauce has to offer.
Hop Sauce Festival is a large fundraising event which is fueled by the helping hands of many volunteers. From beer pouring and security, to setup and breakdown, we offer a variety of positions that you can help us with. Volunteers receive a free T-shirt as well as discounted ticket options.
