Let’s face it, spending the day eating chili, drinking Sweetwater brew and watching bluegrass in the middle of Cabbagetown is just plain fun! The Chomp and Stomp Chili Cook Off & Festival returns to Cabbagetown Park on November 5, 2011 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
For only $5, you can purchase a spoon which allows you to sample chili from more than 100 individuals/teams and local restaurants. I’ve been the last two years and had a blast both years. Just make sure you arrive early. It gets packed in the chili tasting areas.
Grab a cold Sweetwater, find a place on the lawn and kick back with some bluegrass.
If you’re not familiar with Cabbagetown, read up on the area before you head down. Cabbagetown has some interesting history that makes the experience even better.
I will leave you with this music video from Shawn Mullins about Cabbagetown.
