Food Network Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival 2011

Pin It
Caesars Entertainment, in cooperation with the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority, will host the 2011 Food Network Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival July 28 – 31, 2011. Tickets for public events will go on sale Wednesday, April 20, 2011 through http://www.ticketmaster.com/ and http://www.acfoodandwine.com/.

The poster (see left) shows Guy Fieri, Pat and Gina Neely, Robert Irvine and Sunny Anderson. What follows are events I have found on http://www.gourmetshows.com/caesars/events.html. I am so excited for this. Hubby and I had such a blast at this event last year, and in 2009. I like attending the one in Atlantic City better than the one in NYC since that one is so massive and everything is all over the place and somewhat overwhelming. This is a little more intimate and you have casinos all around you to enjoy as well.
