Summer in Georgia signals the start of peach season and this year, Georgia's popular PeachFest is moving to a new location: Peachtree Center. From 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 21, downtown Atlanta's iconic mixed-use development will open its beautifully renovated plaza to more 70 food artisans, pastry chefs and barkeeps for the third annual peach-filled extravaganza.
At PeachFest, guests will have the opportunity to sample the best dishes the city's culinary scene has to offer and rub elbows with some of Atlanta's famous chefs. The sight alone will be worth the downtown detour as guests sample specialty crafted tastes, bites and sips of various on-and-off-menu favorites all featuring the state's signature fruit: the Georgia peach.
Focused on supporting agriculture and providing opportunities for the future farmers of America,the event generates opportunity for smaller farmers across the state. At the helm of the fundraiser is a not-to-miss silent auction featuring items from Atlanta restaurants and sponsors, including rare cellared wines. For an in-depth look at PeachFest, visit the website and watch the overview video.
PeachFest Tickets start at $70 for the all-inclusive afternoon affair. Entry to the event gets you peach-centric dishes of all varieties such as pizza, paleo, baked goods, appetizers, beer, wine, cocktails and much more curated by some of the leading influencers in the city's food and beverage industry. VIP entry costs $100 and includes early access, an extra hour of the festival which includes a private tasting of cellared wines in the silent auction lounge, limited dishes, reserve spirits and more time to mix and mingle with the chefs, winemakers and farmers.
