PAST DATES AND TIMES
- Sunday, Aug 13, 2017 3:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
LOCATION: FlatironCity - 84 Peachtree St NW
Named after Georgia’s most iconic edible, PeachFest aims to celebrate all of this great state’s agricultural diversity – from the namesake peach to blueberries, peanuts, heritage breed pigs, and Vidalia onions. Proceeds benefit Piggy Bank, which is working toward protecting heritage breed pigs, supporting local family farms, and building educational resources and business value for all within the community.
PeachFest 2017 will feature innovative gastronomic takes on a host of local farm products, but there is also another important theme for the day: local communities. By staging a culinary revival in the streets of downtown, the goal is also to highlight the dynamic tastes and energies of Atlanta’s core urban district alongside agricultural spotlights. Among the Atlanta businesses that are to be highlighted are Pearson Farm, The Turnip Truck, The Wrecking Bar, and Hamthropology - Registered Ossabaw Island Pork, and many more to be announced on the website.
