Beach BBQs Permitted July 4 Through Labor Day

Attention All Ventnor Residents and Visitors: The Mayor and Commissioners are pleased to announce that barbecuing on the beautiful beaches of Ventnor will be permitted EVERY DAY starting Saturday, July 4, through Labor Day, September 7, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Propane grills only (no propane tanks larger than 20 lbs.). Coals are difficult to dispose of safely at the beach, if you bury them, and they are still hot, someone can step on them and burn their feet. Putting them in the trash will start a fire. 

Popup 10x10 tents are allowable, no tent should be enclosed by order of the Ventnor City Fire Department.

VCFD reminds you of these Grilling Safety Tips for Outdoor Cooking:

  • Do not place grill under or in enclosures.
  • Make sure grill is stable.
  • Keep your grill clean.
  •  Check for propane leaks on tank and grill.
  • If flame goes out wait to re-light.
  •  Take care around the grill.
  • Never leave your grill unattended.
  • Keep children at least 3 feet away from grills at all times.
  • Be ready to put out the fire, have baking soda on hand to control a grease fire, and a fire extinguisher to handle other fires. If you don’t have a fire extinguisher, keep a bucket of sand next to grill.
  • Never use water to put out grease fire!

Have a great summer, continue practicing social distancing and remember to wear your masks when appropriate!
