Discover Atlanta as it was in this exciting 1920s Big Bash Party with thematic character guides, unlimited food and drinks, and exclusive use of the 1924-built Sweet Auburn Curb Market.

Our enthusiastic and friendly character guides will regale your guests with stories of Atlanta as it was in the 1920s: a young, brash town that was trying hard to become one of the South’s leading cities.

With transportation options, a customizable menu, a live band, trivia, live food demos, and prohibition-style character guides all included, this party will WOW your guests as an event to be remembered. This is more than just another happy hour.

I wanted to thank your company for an amazing experience, from my first Zoom planning call including the prompt responses and revisions to my tour itineraries, culminating in two terrific tours for our groups!

The standard time is for 3 hours, but if you want the party to go longer, we can customize that for you!

How much food is on an Atlanta food tour?

Unlimited tastings! This will be enough for dinner.

Can I change the food options during the Atlanta food tours?

All food is pre-ordered so you may not change options during the tour.

I have a severe food allergy.

Please let us know about severe food allergies.  Our guides also carry Benadryl but do not carry epi-pens.

What type of history is included on the food tours of Atlanta?

The 1920s Big Bash covers the history of prohibition in Atlanta, plus the history of the Curb Market and Auburn Avenue and how it relates to Atlanta’s legacy as the home of the Civil Rights movement.

Is the cooking class messy?

Not at all! There’s a bit of flour and butter to handle, but most guests find that no flour ends up on their clothing, and it’s easy to brush off. If you are concerned, we have aprons available for guests.

I am interested in the Civil Rights Movement. Is that on this tour?

We mention the Civil Rights Movement at a few of the trivia stops, but, if you want to learn about Martin Luther King Jr. or the Civil Rights Movement, we recommend our King Historic District Tour. You could also do the King Tour before or after the 1920s themed Big Bash as part of your conference offerings.

How close is the Atlanta food tour to other attractions?

The Municipal Market is very close to many downtown attractions and is along the Atlanta Streetcar Route. It is an easy trip on the Streetcar to the World of Coke, Georgia Aquarium, National Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Eastside Beltline Trail, and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Park.

Are the Atlanta food tours wheelchair accessible?

The tour is wheelchair accessible. Before you join the tour, please let us know that you will be bringing a wheelchair.

Will the food tours of Atlanta run in the rain?

Aboslutely! This tour is held completely indoors.
