Additional Information


Get ready Atlanta for the 2nd Annual Atlanta Meatball Festival, presented by TasteATL, the culinary event management company behind Taste of Atlanta, will return to Belle Isle Square in Sandy Springs on Sunday, August 30 from 1 – 5 p.m. to serve up a mighty selection of meatball dishes, music, limoncello tastings and much more. Food lovers hungry for all the meatball madness can join Chef Host Linda Harrell of Cibo e Beve to celebrate this iconic culinary combination with a range of recipes – from traditional balls of beef and pork to more non-traditional seafood and chicken. To round out the festival food and fun, a portion of the event proceeds will benefit Second Helpings Atlanta.

Over 20 restaurants looking to make their mark on Atlanta’s meatball scene have signed on to participate, including:

  • 4th & Swift
  • Bhojanic
  • Cibo e Beve
  • Colletta
  • Community Smith
  • Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse
  • Double Zero
  • Food 101
  • Madre + Mason

Like last year, the festival is formatted as a “battle of the balls” challenge to see which chef can claim the title of Atlanta's Mightiest Meatballer. Each of the presented dishes will be voted on by festival attendees and select judges. Once their votes are cast, the top three winners will advance and go head-to-head in the “Meat Brawl Throwdown,” taking place during this year’s Taste of Atlanta festival, set for September 25-27 in Midtown at Tech Square.
