Atlantic Station– Pinnacle Lot

Tickets here.

Midnight Market is an All Night Happy Hour for Foodies who love to eat, drink, & dance! Originally from NYC, the 21+ food fest will be popping up at Atlantic Station for two nights- June 10 & June 11. Atlanta is the first stop of their national tour of experiential 21 and over food festivals. Midnight Market brings together the fun of a night out with the deliciousness of a food festival. It is more than just a typical street fair, it’s a foodie nightlife event complete with DJ entertainment, activities, and a cocktail bar. In celebration of the Atlanta debut there will also be a roller skating rink on-site along with a pop-up artisan market experience.

There will also be pop-up bars provided by Alcohol Heroes where guests can enjoy delicious cocktails while they taste the world. The food vendors create a smaller portion of their regular menu items so guests can try a little bit of everything while the bar serves some menu items at happy hour pricing. Since 2016 the motto of Midnight
Market has always been “Small Bites for a Small Price,” and the founders feel strongly that this theme should continue especially while we come out of the pandemic.

“The theme of Midnight Market has always been to be fun, affordable and a great way for local businesses to thrive in their community. We started Midnight Market six years ago with the goal of uplifting vendors by providing a marketing platform that will allow them to interact with the locals. Now that we are slowly coming out of the pandemic, we knew that it was the most important time to bring events to major cities to unite communities with music, food, shopping and and a relaxed vibe.” – Perla Nieves, Co-Founder of

At the spacious Sports Lawn at Foxhall Resort (next to the festival grounds), fans start with international-inspired BBQ from Chef Mike LaSage with Drunk & Lucky Social Club. Then, a Wild Heaven beer expert discusses how to pair beer and smoked meats. Is Germany onto something with the traditional lager? Should you pair it with the meat or with the sauce? Mmm! What could make this a better way to kick off the day? Well, The Lone Bellow will perform a short set. Sounds like fun, y’all! Capacity – 50 / Cost $40.
Fishin’ with Durand Jones & The Indications:
From a gorgeous lake next to the festival grounds, a fishing guide will talk to fans about the history of the lake, what fish frequent the waters, and what bait works best.

Southern Avenue & Cathead Cocktail Making Class:
To kick things off, a Cathead Distillery expert will lead fans on a brief history of summer cocktails and then on to how to create the classic Cocktail. They’ll share a couple of their best cocktail tricks (one ice cube vs. many, bitters or no, orange zest, etc.) You’ll have all the ingredients provided, so you can play along to create your own. Then, Southern Avenue joins for the making of the second drink, “The Southern Avenue,” which incorporates some of the band’s favorite cocktail characteristics. Must be 21+.  Capacity – 20 / $35 per person.
