6 Food and Drink Events to Check Out in Atlanta This Week

From an annual food and wine festival and a farmers market blowout to Bosnian brunch, charcuterie and cocktails at a banned books book fair, and Sunday cocktails in a garden

Beth McKibben is the editor and staff reporter for Eater Atlanta and has been covering food and cocktails locally and regionally for 12 years.

There’s rarely a day in Atlanta now when a pop-up dinner, food festival, or cool culinary soiree isn’t taking place around town. These food happenings are part of what helps keep Atlanta’s dining scene fun and vibrant.

Each week, Eater sifts through Atlanta’s crowded events calendar and chooses five food and drink events worth checking out. Some are ticketed, include cover charges, or require reservations, while other events are more casual, drop-by affairs. Below are the five food and drink events to check out this week around town.

Think Eater should know about an upcoming food or drink event in Atlanta. Send details to for consideration on a future update.
