Honoring Cabbagetown’s past as a little bit of country in the big city. Chomp & Stomp features old-time music that was popular when residents and mill workers like Fiddlin’ John Carson lived here. They played that old-time music and preserved rural traditions right here in the middle of Atlanta! Hard work and home-cooking, small houses and big hearts, recipes and religion, family and friends, stories and songs – relics of times past kept the community vibrant as it struggled to keep strong in a fast changing world.
Cabbagetown today is still a community of homes, rather than houses – where being a neighbor means more than sharing a fence. Music and food have always helped to define the neighborhood’s spirit. For the past several years, we’ve come together for a family picnic and invited our friends!
What’s better than CHILI on a sunny November afternoon? Folks for miles around descend upon our old mill town for a good old-fashioned cook-off! It’s a contest, not a soup kitchen – get there EARLY if you want to sample… Hundreds of chefs and mad scientists pour their hearts and souls into fascinating recipes… Who will win this year?
