Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine will once again headline Caesars’ sixth annual Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival. This year, Irvine will be joined by James Beard award-winning chef and TV personality Marcus Samuelsson.

Robert Irvine is the charismatic star of “Restaurant Impossible” and “Restaurant Express” on the Food Network. Marcus Samuelsson is the Co-Creator and Executive Chef of the acclaimed Red Rooster Restaurant in New York City. There will be more announcements of celebrity chefs to come before the festivities get underway on July 25.

Last year’s biggest event of the festival was the Beach Soirée. Our guests absolutely loved it! So. . . .a big announcement this year is that the majority of the weekend’s events will be hosted in beachfront and courtyard locations, allowing guests to celebrate outdoors and under the stars

Another “first” at this year’s Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival will be the “Burger Bash.” This exciting event will be presented by “The Beef Checkoff” and will be tented on the beach, complete with a Beer Garden and live music.

The Sixth Annual Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival will feature exciting chefs and an incredible new outdoor format, a true celebration of our beachfront location, that we are really proud to bring to our guests this year,” said Jason Spencer, Vice President of Entertainment, Nightlife and Lifestyle Marketing for Caesars Entertainment. “We invest significant time and thought into refreshing the festival year-after-year to reflect the interests of our ticket holders and provide a weekend of unexpected programming that folks can look forward to. With the festival moving outside along the Atlantic City Boardwalk, we are proud to showcase the beautiful beach outside our doors and host both new visitors and familiar faces.”
