What’s Going On In Atlanta This Weekend, Thursday, April 9th to Sunday, April 12th


FEATURED: Hogs and Hops (Masquerade)

Date: Saturday, April 11th

Time: 1pm to 5pm

About: Last year, it was all about the smoked butts and the Brussels sprouts, what will this year bring? It’s time again for Hogs and Hops: tons of tasty pork products to nosh on and the perfect beer to pair it with. Here is a little snip it of last year’s festival to coax you into attending. If this doesn’t do it, nothing will. You know you want to! “At Hogs and Hops beer was flowing, the barbeque was smoked, the stew was stewing, the collards were steeping, all that being said are you hungry yet?  I drew up my elastic waist pants, gathered wet wipes, and dug in.” Tickets are $45 in advanced and $55 at the door for general admission (beer and 4 food tickets), and VIP are $75 in advance and $85 the day of the event (unlimited everything, 1 hour early entry).

79th Annual Dogwood Festival (Piedmont Park)

Date: Friday, April 10th to Sunday, April 12th

Time: Varies by day.

About: The quintessential Atlanta spring festival that defines all other festivals. The festival all other festivals look up to and hope to be. Chocked full of artwork, food, music, a beer & BBQ event, and those cut puppies doing tricks, this festival has something for you, your friends, your family, even your children (gasp!). If you go to one festival this year, this is it. Get going. Piedmont Park is in full bloom. This is free to attend and pays back in spades in people watching, fried vittles, and beautiful weather. Other events, like the Beer & BBQ event do have a charge. See website for more details.
