    Get some rest tonight, so you can head over to Cabbagetown bright and early tomorrow morning.  

    This good ol' fashioned chili cook-off is the best in Atlanta and the food runs out quickly!

    The "Chomp & Stomp" in Cabbagetown brings in quite a crowd each year and I honestly can't think of a better way to spend a beautiful Fall day in Atlanta.

    This will be Cabbagetown's 10th Annual Chili Cook-off & Bluegrass Festival and it gets bigger and bigger every year.  The first annual cook-off had 20 different kinds of chili and about 900 attendees.  Last year, there were 100 individual chilis, 30 restaurants chilis, 75 artists, 30 food vendors, 15 celebrity judges, and about 20,000 attendees!   Learn more about the full line up of events and vendors.




    If you want BIG personality, diverse neighbors (from attorneys to artists to electricians) and a true historic Atlanta neighborhood with farmhouse Victorians, shot gun style homes and Craftsman bungalows, Cabbagetown may be the perfect fit for you.

    More about Cabbagetown Atlanta 

    The Fulton Cotton Mill (now converted to lofts called The Stacks) is in the heart of Cabbagetown and in the early 1900s it is said that the owner built all of the homes for the employees at the Mill.  Usually the entire family worked at the mill, while cabbage cooked continuously at home so dinner would be ready with the family of workers returned home after a long day. It is said that the aroma of the boiling cabbage is how Cabbagetown got its name.

    Cabbagetown Atlanta Homes

    Cabbagetown is filled with row houses, Victorian Farmhouse style homes, and early bungalows.  Most were built in the early 1900s, so even though many of the homes are quite small (under 1,500 sq ft), they usually have 10 or 13 foot high ceilings, which make the rooms feel much larger... and that historic charm that Atlanta intown home buyers love.  

    In the photo below (from left to right), you will see several Cabbagetown Atlanta home styles.  There are row homes along Carroll Street, detached shotgun Victorian era homes and also bungalows that were built in 1910 to 1925.

    Cabbagetown Festivals & Events

    It's biggest claim to fame is the Chomp and Stomp, an annual Chili Cook-off that winds through the streets of Cabbagetown.  Thousands of Atlantans come to this event every year and there are usually at least 75 booths with different types of chili.  

    As you will see in the photo to the right, it is our annual tradition to cook chili for one of our favorite Atlanta festivals!

    TIP:  If you do come to the Chomp & Stomp event, get there early!  The chili is usually gone in the first 2 or 3 hours.
