Whether you’re in town for business, are touring the area or just need a night out with friends, Valley Forge will provide something for everyone. The appearance of Sinbad will be the first of many great headline performances that will make Valley Forge Casino Resort the newest venue to catch the hottest comedy and music acts in the region.”
Sinbad will headline Valley Forge Casino Resort’s first concert at 8 p.m. Friday, May 4, in the resort’s Waterford Ballroom.

Free meals, show tickets, passes to the 7 the Nightclub and unlimited access to our casino floor are just some of the benefits our members will enjoy.
