Back in early Spring, Pam Berger of Sweet Peach Blog approached John Rich of Oakleaf and Acorn and myself about helping her bring her blog to life. Pam has a real knack for finding the best of Southern artists, designers, food and drink. Five days a week, she shares her findings with her followers and she thought it would be fun to bring all these great things together in one place. John and I were both happy to help and honored that she asked.
In just over a week, the Sweet Peach Revival will open for 3 days of art, food, drink, music and demos. There will be an opening party on Friday evening (the party is free but it is private, so you must register to be on the guest list) that will include food by numerous local food artisans, bakers and makers, music by Brother Hawk (we are still looking for a soft southern female voice to join the festivities, so contact us if you know someone who might be a good fit), trunk shows by Billy Reid, Andover Trask, Honeycomb Studios, Bla Bla Kids & more and an auction that you don’t want to miss! Proceeds go to Fulton County CASA.
Saturday the market will continue and there will be free demos throughout the day. Check the website to see the growing number of artists and demo schedule…there will even be a storytime for kids with local children’s book illustrator, Mike Lowery.
Sunday we will be hosting a private “Bourbon, Bacon and Biscuit Brunch”. Local chefs including Zeb Stevenson, Maggie and Katie Sweeney and Sarah O’Brien are providing their take on the theme. Tickets are $25 and are limited to the first 40 people. Register here.
All the fun will be happening at Belly General Store in Virginia Highlands, at 722 N. Highland Ave. Reduced parking ($2) in Parking Lot 21 on N. Highland, just a block and a half away, is available throughout the weekend, so please take advantage of this and enjoy the numerous other shops and restaurants in the area.
We look forward to seeing you at the Revival!
