We’re Having a Party — All Summer Long in Atlantic City

As Memorial Day approaches and vacation season begins, the events and specials in Atlantic City heat up. With a casino scene that includes everything from slots and craps to thoroughbred harness racing, four signature nightlife experiences, and restaurants led by the likes of Wolfgang Puck and Bobby Flay, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is one of the hottest spots on the East Coast. One-of-a-kind packages, entertainment, and events tailored specifically to LGBT travelers, make the resort Atlantic City’s premier LGBT destination.

This June, the resort launches its summer concert lineup at the brand new Borgata Festival Park Outdoor Concert Grounds. The series kicks off with The Hooters, G. Love & Special Sauce, and Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes — a South Jersey dream. In July, one of the hottest acts in music hits the stage as Meghan Trainor makes it “All About That Bass.” Then country comes to town in August when Darius Rucker and Willie Nelson perform concerts on back-to-back nights.

“We couldn’t be more excited to introduce Festival Park as the newest entertainment amenity here at Borgata,” says Joe Lupo, Senior Vice President of Operations for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “In booking such tremendous artists to perform in a fun, energetic, outdoor space, this new concert venue and festival grounds effectively adds yet another dimension to what we can offer our guests.”

The venue holds 4,500 people at capacity, making it an ideal setting for world-class performances at the resort. In addition to concerts, the park will play host to electric-dance-music parties, food and beverage festivals, and other special events all summer long. Whether you’re a music fan, foodie, or dance enthusiast, Festival Park will have something for you.
