From bluegrass festivals, to ice skating championships, to major music headliners and Atlantic City Convention Center events such as boat shows and major antique and collective exhibitions -- Atlantic City events offer some of the most thrilling and diverse entertainment options on the Eastern seaboard.
From the very first day in January Atlantic City kicks off the New Year with a live Atlantic City Concert on the beach with games, refreshments, and even a polar bear swim. The rest of the year Atlantic City events are no exception, with such musical icons as Madonna and Little Richard coming through town to play at the famous Boardwalk Hall, thrilling locals and annual visitors alike. If you’re interested in an Atlantic City concert make your reservations early, as these venues tend to sell out quickly.
