656 Auburn Ave NE Atlanta
“Each year of the festival, ACF kick off our opening day with a big ol’ party. We love parties.
The oldest surviving water tower in Atlanta, the tower was built in 1906 as part of a state-of-the-art water suppression system for the cotton compress factory next door at what is now Studioplex. HDDC purchased the entire property in 1998, and have since been partners in redeveloping it into the exciting Beltline amenity it is today.
SAW has the wonderful task of reviving the inside and outside of the tower – with an interior mural and art depicting the history of the Old 4th Ward, and the amazing cultural and historical significance that the neighborhood holds.
During the party, there’ll be a preview of the great stuff SAW and HDDC have in the works. In fact, $1 of Eventide beer sold at the event will go towards transforming the water tower into a focal point of the community.
We’re also collaborating with The Spindle for beer, Chicomecóatl and Tinkertown Pies for food and, of course, The Official Chip Of The 2018 Atlanta Cycling Festival – Symphony Chips – will be out in full salty force.
Combine this with lots bike vendors, bike orgs, bike businesses, bike demos and music and you’ve got an amazing Saturday night.”
