Festival Info

The highlight of the Beach Haven White Marlin Invitational has been the introduction of Dock Road Marlin Fest. The street fair festival, which hosts the daily weigh-ins for the WMIT in the heart of the commercial marine district, has been an overwhelming success for sponsors, vendors, and attendees. In cooperation with the town of Beach Haven, we have been granted arguably the best location for a big-game tournament anywhere on the East Coast. Entry to Marlin Fest is free to the public. Attendees at Marlin Fest peruse the many choices vendors have to offer while watching the weigh-ins of the tournament. It’s a family friendly atmosphere which runs for all three days of the tournament.

Opening Hours

Thursday & Friday 3PM - 8:30PM

Saturday 3PM - 8PM
