The Festival


Starting in 2006 with 3,000 people and less than 30 breweries, the original Atlantic City Beer Festival or "Celebration of The Suds" was born. Over the past 16 years, our event has undergone countless changes, added innumerable breweries to the roster, and to date has seen nearly half a million people!

We're proud of our history, and we know first-hand that evolution has played a factor in our success. From our first year seeing 3,000 people, now we annually see over 27,000 throughout the festival weekend and have officially hit capacity for the facility we use, at over 500,000 sq. ft. of beer, music, and fun space!


The Atlantic City Convention Center is your first-line of defense when it comes to arriving in comfort to our event. Covered, monitored, and economical parking is on-site, with easy access to the convention center areas!

You can also catch Beer Fest shuttles via Jitney services from your hotel to the convention center, and vice versa! Jitneys are just $2.25 each way, and run 24/7!
