The annual Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival isn't just beer. It isn't just music. It has become a cultural phenomenon that's home to so many activities, you might need to attend more than one session to experience them all! From fun, to educational, to downright zany...The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival has fun for everyone...over the age of 21, of course.
Every year well over 24,000 beer and music lovers storm through our festival gates to sip, savor and sing with the components of the Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival.
Introduced in 2016, a massive hit for the event! You'll battle it out with 10-12 other hungry wing lovers. Each session will have its own competition and will crown one winner! The competition is exactly 2 hours into the festival, at the halfway mark of each session. Registration is first-come, first-served at the Wingcraft Back Stage behind the Main Stage.
Get in on some eight-on-eight tactical pew pew battles, blast your friends and a few strangers in an interactive gaming experience in the middle of the festival fun!
