What do you get when you mix free concerts on the water, extended retail hours, discount shopping, drink deals and dining specials with a different community event every week? Just another summer Thursday in Keyport.

This year’s Keyport Thursday special events include music from 7 PM to 9 PM each Thursday in June, July, and August. This year’s lineup includes our signature Dog’s Night Out and Keyport Car Show, as well as our very own Farmer’s Market.

See, we’re weekend-lovers here, and sometimes the end of the week just doesn’t come quite soon enough. Join us for a Keyport Thursday or three—shop, dine, unwind and see why we’re the Pearl of the Bayshore.



Special Event Schedule


Dog’s Night Out 


Dog’s Night Out commemorates the furrier, four-legged members of the family on  June 27th. Families are encouraged to bring their canine companions to socialize on a closed West Front Street and enjoy outdoor shopping, live music to be announced. 




Keyport Car Show 7/25 – 5PM to 9PM

(Rain Date: Friday, July 26th)


We anticipate being able to host as many as 125 or so cars in total, and will be using both parking areas because of the popularity and growth of this event in the past few years.  We will be making announcements throughout the show reminding spectators of the cars on display in both locations.  In addition, we ask any participants who will need to leave before the show ends at 9:00pm to also park in the Fireman’s Park lot.  For safety reasons, no vehicles will be allowed to leave West Front Street until all pedestrians have left the street.



Please send a check along with your name, email, phone number,

year, make and model of your car to:



70 West Front Street

Keyport NJ 07735
