The Ascension LGBT Party, which has been located on Fire Island Pines in Long Island — and more recently in Mykonos Greece — is coming to the Asbury Park beach and New Jersey this August.
Organizers say attendees come from around the world. This year in Asbury Park the party organizers say there will be 14 deejays spinning at 11 different locations between August 4-6, 2017 in the city. The main location will be the primary hotel host Asbury Hotel on Kingsley Avenue. The Asbury Hotel is just a short two blocks from the famous beach and Boardwalk. The Saturday Celebration party will take place at the renovated Asbury Lanes, which is adjacent to the hotel, according to Ascension organizers.
The fest was staged at Mykonos Greece for the past two years, Organizers are glad to bring it back to the states. “We are thrilled to bring Ascension back to the states this year,” said Eric von Kuersteiner. He launched the Ascension Party back in 2006 in Long Island. “Ascension is going to bring thousands of visitors from all over the tri-state area as well as the world to Asbury [Park]. It will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase the local businesses to thousands of new visitors.”
Ascension is an LGBT charity event and the organizers say that 100 percent of proceeds raised this year will be donated to Asbury Park and other local LGBT charities.
