Eat all the chili you can stomach at the Cabbagetown Chomp & Stomp, let your heart melt at the 80th annual Cotton States Cat Show, and run through historic neighborhoods at the Downtown Daffodil Dash 5K.
The quirky enclave of Cabbagetown, next to the Old Fourth Ward, sprung up as a mill village in the late 1800s. Young professionals have replaced textile workers, but the close-knit sense of community remains: You’ll find neighbors chatting on their porches, digging in the community garden, or gathering at the local tavern.
This past Saturday, the 10th annual Chomp & Stomp Chili Cook-Off and Bluegrass Festival took place in Cabbagetown Park. More than one hundred varieties of chili were present—30 from local restaurants, the rest from individual competitors contending for chili fame. For five bucks per plastic tasting spoon, attendees milled throughout the residential neighborhood tent by tent, wooed by home-based chefs and their professional counterparts hawking grub over the din of hundreds of tasters.
