The Wildwoods Host Parrothead Festival – A Tribute to Jimmy Buffett Comes to Wildwood August 9


Whether it’s a cheeseburger in paradise that you crave or a Margaritaville margarita, the Wildwoods’ inaugural Parrothead Festival – A Jimmy Buffett Tribute is sure to please! The festival takes place on Friday, August 9 from 5-10 p.m. in Fox Park, directly across from the Wildwoods Convention Center.

Enjoy free admission to this festive event – and wear your most outrageous Parrothead gear to win prizes for the best/most outrageous Parrothead outfit!

For Women: Keeping in the tropical theme, women’s Jimmy Buffett outfits tend to include lots of hula skirts, colorful leis, and brightly colored sundresses. Fun accessories include parrot-themed jewelry, gaudy tropical sunglasses, and seashell or coconut bras.

For Men: Men’s Jimmy Buffett outfits tend to be just as over-the-top as women’s outfits, if not even zanier. It’s not uncommon to see men rocking a hula skirt or a seashell bra over a t-shirt and shorts. Tamer options include Hawaiian shirts, board shorts or swimming trunks, and heavily accessorized hats.

The day’s events and activities include a large selection of food trucks, shopping, entertainment, and fun including VR Gaming and Knockerball, beach balls, and hula hoops. Performing throughout the evening will be the Landsharks, who have earned the title as the most sought after Buffett Tribute Band in the country.

The first 500 people through the gate will receive a free lei.
