August is the time of year when a lot of homeowners take a look at their backyards and think, “You know, if we put in a nice patio or deck out here, we could have some great outdoor parties.”
That’s kind of what we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa were thinking when we put in our new outdoor concert venue Festival Park in time for summer 2015. Ok, it was probably more complicated than that and involved architects and technicians and plumbers and stuff, but that was basically the idea.
What we do know, is that the party hasn’t stopped since we opened the place in Borgata’s beautiful bay-side backyard. In fact, we’re still coming up with party ideas for Festival Park including Festival Fridays.
Basically, every Friday from now through Labor Day weekend we are having a big old free outdoor party presented by our friends at 100.7 WZXL radio, the best rock radio station in the Atlantic City area.
There are two words that best describe the line-up for Festival Fridays. Free—‘cause these are free parties—and tribute, because we’re talking about a line-up of great rock tribute bands.
We can say that now that we launched Festival Fridays on July 31 with Philbilly, a fantastic contemporary country music band. So basically we started with a hootenanny.
But the rest of the schedule is devoted to tribute bands for some of the greatest classic rock bands ever.
Check it out:
Aerosmith Tribute Band
August 7 AT 8:00 PM
Eagles Tribute Band
August 14 AT 8:00 PM
Billy Joel Tribute Band

Did we mention that these shows are free and no tickets are required? Doors open at 7pm.
And don’t forget that we still have a full lineup of shows and concerts for Festival Park including Darius Rucker, Willie Nelson, Counting Crows, Meghan Trainor and Tiesto, just to name a few. Check out the full schedule.
We already knew how to throw a party here at Borgata, now we have the best backyard in Atlantic City to hold them.
