ADVENTURES IN ATLANTA’S PICKS FOR THIS WEEK & WEEKEND IN ATLANTA

Great Atlanta Beer Fest 2018

The 8th annual Great Atlanta Beer Fest will be held on Saturday, October 13th from 1-5 pm. We will have over 150 beers as well as a selection of 25+ wines and cider to choose from. There will be live music, DJ Q-tip, plenty of fun and games, and food will be available for purchase. The beer list will be added to the website soon.

2018 Castleberry Hill Loft Tours

The Castleberry Hill Neighborhood Association is proud to announce the much-anticipated date for the 2018 Castleberry Hill Loft Tour. This year’s Loft Tour is Saturday, October 13th 11am – 5pm. Tour goers will have a peek into the lives of the people who call this eclectic neighborhood home. Our homes, our restaurants, our galleries and boutiques are open for you to explore! Castleberry Hill is located just seconds from the CNN Center, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta. A far cry from the days of, “Snake Nation”, where Castleberry Hill functioned as a red-light district, this Historic and Art District has been named one of the Top 10 Art Districts in the country. Castleberry Hill has also been used numerous times for filming from TV to the big screen and everything in between. SuperFly, Captain America: Civil War, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Game night, Sleepy Hollow, Triple Nine, The Fast and Furious, Vampire Diaries, and The Walking Dead, have all been filmed here. Tickets are $25.

2018 Oktoberfest Atlanta

Put on your lederhosen and join us for a full weekend of German-themed fun at Oktoberfest Atlanta! We’re taking THREE days (October 12th-14th) to enjoy a variety of deliciously cold German beers, Oktoberfest-inspired craft beer, German food, live music, and an abundance of games and Oktoberfest themed activities in Historic Fourth Ward Park. There are 3-day passes and single-day tickets available, which include admission to the event, a souvenir 22oz beer stein, and first beer free (one per day for a 3-day pass). Tickets run $18 to $46.
