To qualify for no-cost space during the Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend, non-profit organizations agree to offer a no-cost, audience-interactive activity. The idea is two-fold, first to offer something “fun” for our festival friends (especially the young ones) to do, and secondly, to enhance the exposure your organization receives. This activity need not be complex, but is an integral part of being on the Boardwalk. You may outline your anticipated activity on the application form.

Like you, the Neptune Festival is a non-profit organization. As such, we are critically dependent on the efforts of our volunteer friends to help. We ask that each group selected as a participating non-profit organization provide a minimum of ten (10) volunteers September 30. CLICK HERE for a Volunteer Sign Up form. Please fill out the form and email to Volunteers must be identified prior to approval of your application. You may substitute up to the day of the event, if necessary.

If your structure is not self-contained, the non-profit must construct a well-decorated booth, erect a personally owned tent, or rent a tent as previously outlined.
