The Exit 0 International Jazz Festival in Cape May, NJ is going down between May 30-June 1, 2014. For three days, Cape May, NJ will host over 100 of the best international touring musicians in the world. People will be able to walk from venue to venue, enjoying everything from jazz, to soul, to blues, to R&B.

This year, there's something new: Jazz at the Estatea celebration of 25 Years of the Cape May Music Festival. An outdoor, rain or shine stage on the grounds of the historic Emlen Physick Estate will have world class performances from noon until six. In addition to the music, a lineup of Cape May & South Jersey food vendors, as well as stands from local breweries and vineyards, will take over Estate's grounds. So why not make your way down there, and enjoy some jazz, food, drinks, and maybe even make your way to what some might consider one of the the best sunsets in the world.

Tickets are what you want to make of the event, so visit the ticketing page for more information.

Most of Philadelphia will be making their weekend shore trips, if not already, then definitely by the end of the month. Heck, a lot of Philadelphia has probably already moved there until August. And yes, they might be missing some of the cool events happening up here, but who says the Jersey Shore doesn't have some of their own fun festivals to take part in? For example, Sea Isle City's Craft Beer & Rock Festival.

On Saturday, May 31st, from 3:00-7:00 PM, a huge stage will go live with local rocker, LeCOMPT, and shore-goers will drink some of the best beer this coast and country has to offer. Tickets start at $40 a person for General Admission, $60 for VIP tickets (private lounge, extra hour of beer sampling), and $15 if you're the designated driver. Purchase your tickets here. The festival takes place on 63rd & Landis Avenue in Sea Isle City, and the line-up of breweries is something you'd find in a beer-nerd's heaven:

"A Gathering of Craft Beer & Spice Enthusiasts" is a label right up my alley, and I'm sure that goes the same for many of you. On Saturday, May 31st, from 11:00 AM-7:00 pm (last pour is at 6:30 pm), the Hop Sauce Festival will take place on the ball field in Beach Haven, between 9th Street and Taylor Avenue, in LBI, NJ. It's a whole festival designed around the concept that nothing goes better with something spicy than an ice cold beer—and of course, the food and beer will be local. General Admission tickets are $10, and General Admission + Craft Beer tickets are $35. You can buy the tickets here.
