This is an impressive building from a previous period in American History. Built predominantly of wood this is a large room. Attended a brass band concert. The band was joined by the organ for a couple of numbers. A mighty beast indeed. Maybe some pipes...More

One of my great treats is enjoying a live concert on a summer’s evening at the Great Auditorium. Doors open, a sea breeze blowing through. Great acoustics. Old fashioned US spirit. 125 Year’s of history. You can picture the great performers and speakers who have...More

Impressive structure, huge, iconic. Summer concerts without AC--yet somehow not a problem. Attending Sun. service in summer is interesting.

Haven't been to a show there in a while, but still go by when we're in the area. Shows are usually pretty good with some old(er) headliners. No ac but a breeze helps. Check who'll be there on their web site

The Great Auditorium is a quintessential part of Ocean Grove. It is a gorgeous place with a rich history. No matter what time of year you visit, it is impressive.

It's a beauty to see and to enter. I think it's the only or largest 100% wood structure in NJ. Anyway, it's an architectural treasure. The entertainment is ultra family friendly; a lot of it world-renowned entertainment. The one thing - it doesn't have air...More

A lawn opposite the main entrance is reserved for handicapped permit holders. In side not so easy as it’s an old building.

No alcohol is sold in Ocean Grove but you can bring your own wine to several restaurants. You may drink water in the Auditorium but that is all. There is no food there but several good restaurants within walking distance
