The Casino Association of New Jersey (CANJ) is kicking off a busy fall schedule with premier dining, world-class entertainment, and football. Atlantic City casinos will welcome sports fans tonight as the Los Angeles Rams take on the Buffalo Bills.
“The first football game of the year is a great way to kick off the fall season here in Atlantic City,” said Mark Giannantonio, president of the Casino Association of New Jersey. “We had a strong summer and are following it up with a full schedule of world-class entertainment and events for the fall. Our commitment to attracting new visitors to Atlantic City demonstrates the industry’s focus on the continued growth and development of Atlantic City. We are optimistic about the future of this historic seaside destination.”
Visitors to Atlantic City in the coming months can expect brand new entertainment, promotions, and events offered by all New Jersey casinos and local businesses. And some fan favorites are returning, too, like Atlantic City Restaurant Week (October 2 -7), a six-day celebration of the culinary scene in Atlantic City. Later that month, New Jersey’s historic Atlantic City Marathon takes place October 22-23 with eight miles of oceanfront boardwalk running. And the fall means there is a festival for everyone, including, Atlantic City Comedy Fest 2022 (October 8), Atlantic City Cinefest/Downbeach Film Festival (October 15-16) and the Atlantic City Tattoo Expo (November 4-6).
“The Atlantic City casino industry supports the local economy and small business community by attracting visitors from all over the world who come here to experience the best of the best,” said Christina Renna, President & CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey. “Atlantic City’s diverse entertainment offerings are second-to-none. Whether you are looking for something to do for a few hours or are planning a weekend getaway, this city is the place to be.”
Here is just a sampling of what Atlantic City has planned this fall:
