PeachFest Atlanta 2019

Date: Sunday, July 21st

Time: 4 pm

About: Let’s get peachy! 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 than 1,000 attendees and 70 food artisans, pastry chefs and barkeeps for the third annual peach filled extravaganza. PeachFest will be Peachtree Center’s first-ever public event since completing its modernization in May.

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 including Andre Gomez, the visionary behind Porch Light Latin Kitchen. Guests can also expect appearances from local farmers like Jon Jackson of Comfort Farms who will take the stage to discuss the difference of raising heritage breeds on open pastures. 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. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased on the website. For an in-depth look at PeachFest, visit the website and watch the overview video.
