Chomp & Stomp
I'm just going to go out on a limb here and postulate that Chomp & Stomp, Cabbagetown's annual chili cookoff, is one of the greatest festivals in Atlanta. And Atlanta has a lot of festivals. Show up at 12:30, taste chili from dozens and dozens of restaurants and amateurs, drink some beer, nurse your chili-belly in the grass of the Cabbagetown park while listening to bluegrass, and enjoy one of the best parts of fall in this city.

Will Kiss For Laughs
The Goat Farm
Two of the most hilarious Atlantans we know are getting hitched, and the night before their nuptials, they're hosting a pre-wedding comedy throwdown that'd put any stiff rehearsal dinner to shame. The holy matrimony of Kevin Gillese, artistic director at Dad's Garage, and Amber Nash, voice of Pam on Adult Swim's Archer, will be celebrated with a night of sketch, improv, stand-up, live music, and all sorts of tomfoolery with artists in Atlanta and beyond.
