After a tremendous first year success, Boujee Foodie Con is returning to the grounds of Fort Monmouth in Oceanport on June 1st and 2nd.  In year two, this outdoor, one-of-a-kind, elevated food festival, mixed with music, games, experiences, and more, will be bigger and “boujee-er!”  It is an unforgettable experience for foodies, families, music lovers, and the community.

“We’re thrilled to be back this year and excited to bring an even bigger and better event to the community,” says CW Events founder, Renee Lam-Whiteman. “We had close to 5,000 attendees last year and have been working hard to top last year’s experience.  A lot more restaurants and vendors are interested in participating this year, based on the success of our first event.”   Co-organizer, Melanie Carpenter adds,  “The response to Boujee Foodie last year was beyond our dreams.  The success was a true testament to the extraordinary and diverse food scene in this area and the growing demand of residents from near and far for events like these.”

Other exciting additions this year include the Red Bank Exotic Car Club, Nicol Rackets pickleball and squash court experience, and new carnival games.  On the main stage will be musical performances by:  RUBIX KUBE: The ‘80s Strike Back Show, So Watt, Earth Monkeys, and Tess Cameron.

Once again, as one of the event’s main sponsors and owner of the event location, TetherView CEO Michael Abboud is donating 100% of the rent proceeds to Oceanport First Responders to include First Aid, Fire and Police Department donations this year. Additional sponsors include Lean Life Weight Loss Center, Atlantis Mortgage, Court Liquors, Nicol Rackets, Sprite, Tropicana, Boxed Water and O’Brien Realty.

Additionally, the turning of the guard at the Oceanport Mayor’s office would not be complete without new Mayor Tom Tvrdik taking over former Mayor Jay Coffey’s spot in the dunk tank this year!   “We are excited to see the Boujee Foodie festival returning this year, says Mayor Tvrdik.  “Last year was very successful and not only did everyone have a great time, 100% of the rent proceeds went to Oceanport’s Volunteer First Aid Squad, which was much appreciated.

The event also gave everyone a chance to witness Fort Monmouth’s transformation from a vacant former military base to a flourishing residential and commercial part of Oceanport’s community.  This year we are excited to see that the proceeds will be divided between our volunteer First Aid Squad and Fire Departments.  I look forward to being a part of this event and challenge those that feel they have the arm and accuracy to dunk me in the booth.”

Other, non-food vendors include: The Flower Spot, Cutco, Jaime’s, Honeysuckle Nectary Apiary & Gardens, Nikki’s Rasoi jarred Indian sauces, Heka Cherie Organic CBD Balms and Tinctures, First Atlantic Federal Credit Union (SATURDAY ONLY!), Dainzie Costello Psychic, Rogue Hair Salon, Elevation Performance Assisted Stretching and more.
