The 1st annual New York Craft Brewers Festival - Long Island takes place on Saturday, September 7th, at the famous Belmont Park Racetrack in Elmont, NY. In this unique venue, attendees will enjoy New York State Breweries from every region of the state.

VIP tickets allow access to the festival one hour earlier, a special VIP glass and access to enjoy specially selected beer not available to the general admission ticket holders.

The festival will take place in full view of the horse racing happening throughout the day. Enjoy your favorite New York State craft beer at the festival and bet on the horses at the same time. The festival will be set up just outside of the final turn so you'll be in full view of all the action.
