Attendees of the third annual Atlanta Fermentation Festival can sample, purchase, and barter fermented products from dozens of local and regional artisans, while learning about the process and benefits of fermentation through live demonstrations and educational talks. The free festival will be held from 11 a.m.-6 p.m, Sunday, March 24, at the West End BeltLine Lee + White food and beverage district.

Atlanta Fermentation Fest charges head first into its third year of celebrating the art of fermentation, as well as raising awareness of the practice’s benefits and history. The festival will temporarily take over the Lee + White food and beverage district’s Cultured South, the first kombucha bar in Georgia, and will feature lectures, demonstrations, samples, and more.

Fermentation Fest is the brainchild of Cultured South Fermentation Co. founder and Golda Kombucha brewmaster Melanie Wade, a prominent local advocate for fermentation and Appalachian herbal medicine. Golda Kombucha released Georgia’s first CBD-infused beverage earlier this year, which will be available at the festival along with other seasonal kombuchas on tap. “We believe in the health and healing benefits of fermented foods, and we believe that fermentation and food sustainability should be shared and taught,” Wade says. “Cultured South and the Fermentation Festival have always been about educating and connecting the community, as well as sharing our own kombucha and cultured food.”
