The 2020 edition of the annual Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival was originally scheduled to take place last April. It was moved to August because of the pandemic, and then moved again, to April of this year. It’s fourth move comes with a twist: It will take place June 4-5, but at a different location, Atlantic City’s outdoor Bader Field, instead of the Atlantic City Convention Center.
According to a message on the festival’s website, “The move to Bader Field will allow the festival producer to host the Festival in the open air while creating a level of social distancing to support celebrating some of the country’s most savory brews. While the Festival’s focus is craft beer and celebrations, festival producers will put processes in place to limit unnecessary contact while creating the fun festival environment so may have become accustomed to over the years.”
There will be three sessions, with tickets available at these links:
Musical attractions will be announced on March 22, according to the message on the website, which also states that the festival will offer “world-famous cuisine from staple Atlantic County restaurants, culinary demonstrations, educational seminars, sideshow acts, and some ‘off the wall’ activities. You’re invited to enjoy a free play arcade, hot wing eating contests, larger-than-life corn hole, Silent Disco, hatchet throwing, keg tossing, and so much more!”
