Get ready Atlanta for the 2nd Annual 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, August 30 from 1-5pm in Sandy Springs at the Belle Isle Square parking area next door to Cibo E Beve. Produced by TasteATL and hosted by Chef Linda Harrell, the event will benefit Second Helpings Atlanta.
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 Meat Brawl Throwdown at Taste of Atlanta.
In addition to the wide selection of meatball dishes, wine and beer (available for purchase), this festival will spice things up with sweet treats, limoncello tastings, music by DJ MadFlip.
Advance tickets will be available online beginning June 17, 2015.
Tickets include entry to the event, meatball tastes from your favorite restaurants, entertainment & more.
Children 10 and under are free with a paid adult. Beverages available for purchase.

Second Helpings Atlanta is a non-profit food rescue organization whose mission is to fight hunger and reduce food waste in the Metro Atlanta area by rescuing surplus food and delivering it to those in need. With a team of nearly 500 volunteer drivers, SHA serves as the link between our network of 59 food donors and the 31 front-line agencies who feed the hungry on a daily basis. 365 days a year, our volunteers rescue food from our food donors, transport it to one of our agencies and return home in 90 minutes or less. Since our first food pick-up in 2004, SHA has collected and distributed over 5 million pounds of food, enough food for over 4.16 million meals.
