What is The Beltline Boil?

The Beltline Boil is a neighborhood festival on the Atlanta Beltline’s Eastside Trail that focuses on the community’s vibrant live music and local eats! The featured event of the festival is a friendly Low Country Boil competition between local restaurants competing for a $5,000 prize to be donated to a charity of their choice! At the inaugural event in 2014, 4,000+ hungry attendees enjoyed Low Country Cookin’ from One Midtown Kitchen, Two Urban Licks, 4th & Swift, Barcelona, Bantam Pub, Loca Luna, Metro Fresh, Parish and Serpas! Bantam Pub took the crown as the crowd’s favorite boil and won $5,000 for Operation P.E.A.C.E!
