BELOW, YOU WILL FIND COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR EVENT. We will be adding to it regularly!
THE MORE YOU KNOW...
Do you have to be 21 to enter the Festival?
To enter The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival as a patron, you must be 21 years of age with a valid, state-issued form of identification. This guideline cannot be bent in any way, shape, or form.
No babies or kids are allowed (even if they are in strollers). These humans all fall under the "Under 21" category.
Repeat- YES. ALL ATTENDEES, EVEN DESIGNATED DRIVERS, MUST BE 21 YRS OLD AND OVER TO ENTER.
Is the beer included with my ticket?
Yes! When you purchase a ticket to The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival, this grants you access to responsibly enjoy our selection of nearly 400 beers made by over 100+ breweries from across the globe. Enjoy!
Where do I park?
There is ample parking on Bader Field. However, this is managed by the city of Atlantic City. There is a parking fee of $20 per car.
How available are UBERS & LYFTS?
Great question. It's all based on supply and demand. some years its been easy others not so much. We suggest making sure all of your ride shares are booked in advance.
What if I am a designated driver?
You're a good friend. No, seriously, thank you for doing that. Designated Driver tickets are available for $30 at the door. You, as a D.D., must be accompanied by a G.A. ticket holder. The D.D. ticket is not a discounted ticket because an attendee doesn't drink. You're permitted to enjoy the music, the food, the amusements, and the vendors, just not the beer. You'll also get a complimentary high-five from us for being so awesome. Any D.D. that is caught drinking will be removed from the Festival with no warnings.
REPEAT: ALL ATTENDEES MUST BE 21YRS OLD AND OVER TO ENTER THE EVENT!
Are VIP Tickets available?
Yes, we do have an AWESOME VIP option (that sells out every year) and includes the following:
Early entry into your session of A.C. Beer Fest (30 Minutes)
A welcome toast with festival organizer Jon Henderson
Access to VIP Chill Tent

A custom VIP pint glass from us at A.C. Beer Fest
Various gifts and goodies from our event partners.
IS re-entry into the Festival permitted?
That's a negative there, friend. Due to state and local alcohol control board guidelines for the safety and security of our patrons, staff, and bands, once a patron exits the festival floor, they will not be granted re-entry to the event. Unfortunately, this guideline is adhered to strictly and is not able to be negotiated.
What type of bags can we bring to the Festival?
All bags are subject to search:
Clear reusable bags are allowed inside the festival as long as they are 12”x 6”x 12” or smaller. Fanny packs/small clutches that are smaller than 4.5”x6.5” do not have to be clear. You may bring in bags that are not clear and larger than 4.5”x6.5” (ex: cinch bags/canvas totes) if they are empty and folded upon arrival.
Is the event rain or shine?
Are we allowed to bring water bottles into the Festival?
You are allowed to bring one sealed water bottle per person into the Festival or empty reusable water bottles to be filled with water from a festival vendor. We will not have free water fill stations on site. However, there will be non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase.
Are animals allowed?
What are the festival's Covid Policies?
The 2023 Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival is located outdoors. We will not ask for your vaccination status unless it is mandated by the State of NJ. Face coverings are optional.
