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.

It's a win-win for everyone: our fans can see some of our favorite bands in a uniquely intimate setting for a modest donation and collectively support the Waterkeeper Alliance's crucial work to keep our rivers and oceans clean and healthy."
