“Best beerfest yet.” – Nick M. (Valley Stream, NY)

“This craft beer festival was a lot of fun.” – Dan M. (Baldwin, NY)

“Without a doubt much more fun than I anticipated! There were three or four BIG rows of craft breweries and most were serving between 2 and 3 different brews.”  – Kate K. (Moriches, NY)

“It was the first time I've ever been to a beer festival and couldn't believe how much amazing beer and cider there was, how amazing the people were, and how many knowledgeable folks were there.” – Gaurav P. (New York, NY)

Long Islanders aren’t shy about their love of beer…They come out in record numbers to support all the local guys and are excited when they discover a new beer from a national or international brewery!  The Fesitval, a thirst-quenching pay-one-price beer tasting event, is held indoors on the covered open air concourse at the Belmont Park Racetrack and offers beer aficionados, beer lovers and the casual beer drinker the opportunity to speak to company representatives and the brewers responsible for creating some of the world’s most popular and award-winning brews.
