Sunday, June 25 will mark the start of the 16th season of The Big Joe Jersey Talent Show. Can you believe it? 16 years ago we started shining a spotlight on the incredible amateur talent coming out of New Jersey. The tradition continues this summer as always, on the beach at Jenkinson’s in Pt. Pleasant Beach! It’s the best free entertainment in NJ.

The big show starts at 7 p.m. sharp and runs every Sunday night throughout the summer. Bring your beach chairs, friends, family, neighbors and see who will be the next biggest New Jersey talent. Such as Kaleigh Brendle of Freehold, our 2016 first place winner:

Through the years The Big Joe Jersey Talent Show has been home to over 30 contestants who currently are, or who have been on Broadway. Plus several finalists have gone on to compete in major network talent shows such as American Idol, America’s Got Talent, and The Voice.

We received tons of submissions to participate in the annual Big Joe Jersey Talent Show but there's still time to submit your entry and get in on this year's fun. We can’t wait to kick off another great season! See you there!
