Are you looking for a new way to spend the day in New Jersey? Maybe you and your family are looking to take a fun day trip. Well you’re in luck. One NJ attraction that our team at Value Van & Car Rental recommends is the Cape May Craft Beer and Crab Festival on Saturday, August 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The festival is located in Cape May, which is a beautiful two-hour drive down the coast from our Newark rental location. Pile your group into a rental van, and be on your way to a day filled with food, drinks, and entertainment. Here’s a bit more about what the event has to offer.

Crab and Beer Festival

Food and Entertainment

Located on the grounds of the beautiful Emlen Physick Estate, this all-day event features local and regional craft beers to go along with some of your favorite summer foods. Choose from steamed crab, pulled pork, crab cakes, shrimp, or hot dogs, or go ahead and sample them all! A few other attractions that bring in guests for a day of fun include:

  • All-day music on an outdoor stage
  • An old-fashioned Victorian circus with jugglers and acrobats from the Give & Take Jugglers
  • Crafts and collectibles show
  • Craft beers and other spirits 
Admission to this event is free, but there will be a charge for food, beverages, and some activities, and commemorative t-shirts will be available.

Getting There

Cape May makes an easy day trip for anyone in the greater Newark or Union City areas. Your group can travel together in a minivan or passenger van so you can all travel down the coast together. You might even want to go for a conversion van if you’d like a little added comfort and onboard entertainment. To find out about all your van rental options, all you have to do is contact us at Value Van & Car Rental at (908) 851-9595. We’d be glad to talk with you about your options and help you make a reservation for your day out.
