The SweetWater 420 Fest originated in 2004 as a celebration of music and sustainability, inspired by the Earth Day movement. The festival takes its name from the SweetWater Brewing Company, a local Atlanta brewery and the event's main sponsor. Initially envisioned as a one-day Earth Day party, the festival grew over the years, expanding to a full weekend of music, art, and environmental awareness. The organizers aimed to create an event that not only provided entertainment but also promoted eco-friendly practices and community engagement. The festival not only showcases live music but also emphasizes environmental sustainability, offering eco-friendly initiatives, a 5K run, and an artist market.
As of this writing early bird tickets are on sale, and all details can be found on their official site.

About Pullman Pratt District
Initially built in 1904 by Pratt Engineering, the site was home to the manufacturing of fertilizer bombs during WWI and the patenting of liquid carbonated gasses purchased by a then-startup, The Coca-Cola Company. In 1922, The Pullman Company purchased and expanded the site. Pullman, renowned for luxurious rail travel across the country, hired African American men as porters to service rail car passengers. The Brotherhood of the Sleeper Car Porters was the first organized African-American labor union and was instrumental in the civil rights movement. In 2017 the site was purchased by Atomic Entertainment, who has transformed the Pullman Yards into the premier arts and entertainment destination in the southeast, showcasing a variety of world-class exhibits, restaurants, cultural events, concerts, festivals, corporate events, private parties, galleries while serving as the filming destination of some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters including HUNGER GAMES, FAST AND FURIOUS, BABY DRIVER, and BAD BOYS 3.
