Its Fine Under the Brine!



Cultured South presents: Atlanta Fermentation Fest. This unique event was created from a love of fermentation. Fermentation Fest is a family event that provides education, hands-on fun, and a diverse experience for all. The event celebrates all things Fermentation from kombucha to kraut to beer.


Why Fermentation?

We started this festival to gain a better understanding of fermentation, the history of traditional food preparation, and how it relates to our food system. The festival is a hands-on educational day of learning and sharing this information and the importance of fermentation with our community in a fun and impactful way.


Atlanta Fermentation Fest aims to:


  • Continue to grow awareness about fermentation and educate the community about the history and benefits of traditional food preparation.

  • Provide a hands-on education experience to treasure with friends and family

  • Devote a portion of profits to and highlight a local non-profit organization dedicated to the local food movement

"We reject certain food because it is rotten. Certain food we can see is fresh. But there is this creative space between fresh food and rotten food where most of human culture's most prized delicacies and culinary achievements exist."

- Sandor Katz


"Teaching the community about our fermentation while letting them try our product is the best way for us to connect with a larger demographic while instilling our message, story and values in people from near and far. Fermentation Fest 2017 was a huge success for our business."
