Spring Craft Beer Festival Celebrates 10th Anniversary
Move to New Location Announced

March 7, 2016-Elmont, N.Y. Event producer, Starfish Junction has confirmed that the new location for the 10th Annual Spring Craft Beer Festival, being held on Saturday April 2, 2016, will be Belmont Park Racetrack located at 2150 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont, NY 11003. More than 50 craft breweries will be in attendance, pouring samples of their finest brews-more than 100 in all. Tickets for the festival are on sale now at the event website This is a 21+ event.

"We had a great nine year run at Nassau Coliseum but had to relocate due to the renovation plans for the Coliseum," said Starfish Junction owner, Andy Calimano. While Calimano plans to return to a bigger and better Coliseum in the future, "this new location, just ten miles west of the Coliseum, gives us many advantages, including free parking for attendees."

"This could very well be our best show yet," said Alyssa O'Keefe, event coordinator at Starfish Junction. "With more than 100 beers available for sampling, a few surprise releases, the debut of some new breweries, and a take-home souvenir from 94.3 The Shark, this year's festival will not disappoint."

The event is sponsored in part by, Long Island's local beer calendar. This event is proud to support and help raise funds for Kids Need More (Motivational Recovery Environments, Inc.), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It is one of the only camps of its kind to serve child cancer patients and siblings.
