Celebrate Labor Day 2019 With AC Cinefest


Celebrate Labor Day with Cocktails and a Cruise

Usher in Labor Day weekend with the annual Atlantic City Cinefest Happy Hour Cruise fund-raiser aboard the iconic Cruisn 1 on Friday evening, Aug. 30. The one hour journey around the back bay departs the dock at Historic Gardner’s Basin at 6 p.m.  Boarding begins at 5:30 p.m.

“We had a great time last year and raised a lot of funds too,” says Joelle Sokolic, president of the non-profit Cinefest.

The Cinefest is partnering with Atlantic City Cruises to raise funds for the 2019 event, Oct. 4 to 6. The organization earns 50 percent of each ticket sold on behalf of the festival. 

Tickets for the cruise only are:
  • $20 for adults
  • $15 for seniors 62 and over
  • $10 for children 5 to 15. 

A full cash bar is available or patrons can purchase the Cruise-n-Cocktail Package for $40, which includes house drinks, wine, beer, and soda. 

"This calm water cruise is ideal, a relaxing cruise with great music and specialty cocktails that heads behind Brigantine Cove and into the Golden Nugget Marina,” says Captain Jeff George, president of Atlantic City Cruises. "What a great way to start the Labor Day Weekend."

To reserve a place on the cruise, contact Joelle Sokolic, 609-515-2189 or To pay in advance and insure a ticket, contact Joelle to arrange for payment via Venmo. If spots are available, you can pay at the dock prior to the cruise. Cash only.
