Ascension is New Jersey’s Wildest Weekend Festival
If buff boys on the beach in tight speedos is your thing, this is one festival that you won’t want to miss. Ascension Party, AKA “the summer’s wildest weekend festival of music, dance and friendship,” is a must-attend sun-fest that takes place August 4-6 in the gay-friendly beach resort town of Asbury Park, NJ—a quick ride from New York City.
Expect to party together with thousands of men from around the globe. The three-day, eleven-party, fourteen-DJ Ascension festival on the sun-drenched Jersey Shore is sure to make you rise to attention. Bada bing!
The merriment begins Friday night with the VIP cocktail party at 7pm, followed by the Ascension Underwear Party. It continues Saturday with the weekend’s main event, the Ascension Beach Party from 1pm to 8pm, proceeded by the Saturday Night Celebration starring superstar DJ Paulo.
Then, on Sunday, its time to break out the Speedos for the Ascension Pool Party before heading to grand finale Closing Party, taking place Sunday at 10:30pm.
