Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival Returns June 4-5

Atlantic City Beer and Music FestivalPresented by Ocean Casino Resort, returns to Bader Field in full force on Saturday June 4th and Sunday June 5th, for two days of great music and tasty beers with wacky activities with a fun carnival vibe.
There is a reason Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival is one of the most popular beer events in the country.

Bader Field sets the scene for the 2nd consecutive year for another incredible festival of beer and music. In 2021 after a year of covid break, the festival is back in its new outdoor setting on the sprawling old 142 airport. Festival-goers were in awe of this huge space opportunities, creating more of an authentic, immersive live. It’s no shock to most that festival producers decided to make this place the new home of the festival.

Quoting half-brothers Brennan and Dale, “look at all this space; there is so much room for activities. If you have been to the festival for the past 16 years, you know that there is no shortage of fantastic and beer-related beers Activities.


Jon Henderson, festival producer:

“After the lifting of the covid restrictions on gatherings and during the 2021 event season, we noticed a dynamic change in where people wanted to be and how they wanted to celebrate together. A lot of the reviews we received were on the outside, it’s a must. With a festival of this magnitude, keeping the event outdoors on Bader’s grounds was a no-brainer; it was better; it was like an outdoor festival.
