Get ready Atlanta for the first ever Atlanta Meatball Festival showcasing one of the world’s most beloved beef-pork-lamb-chicken (and sometimes seafood!) combos. Join us as Atlanta’s favorite restaurants will prepare a wide selection of mouthwatering meatball dishes in this “battle of the balls” competition under the big top tents Sunday, September 14 from 2-6pm in Sandy Springs at the Belle Isle Square parking next door to Cibo E Beve. Produced by TasteATL and hosted by Chef Linda Harrell, the event will benefit the nonprofit, Open Hand.
There are also some serious bragging rights up for grabs. As a true “battle of the balls” challenge, each dish will be voted on by judges and attendees to see who has Atlanta’s mightiest meatball. Once the votes are cast, the top three winners will advance and go head-to-head in a MeatBrawl Throwdown on Saturday, October 25 at Taste of Atlanta.
In addition to the wide selection of meatball dishes, this San Gennaro-type festival will spice things up with wine, beer and limoncello tastings along with an “on the ball” silent auction featuring amazing gifts and experiences to benefit Open Hand.
Celebrating 26 years of service in Atlanta, Open Hand is the largest community-based provider of home delivered meals and nutrition education in the country. Their mission is to help people prevent or better manage chronic illness by using nutrition and nutrition counseling as tools to achieve improved health outcomes.
To get the ball rolling, Convoy, Atlanta’s hometown Classic Country and Southern Rock Tribute will be in the house!
