To Host Epic, Four-Day Marathon Of Halloween Events
For Immediate Release—Abandon all hope ye who enter here…From October 28th to 31st, Ponce City Market is hosting “A Haunting on Ponce: Eat, Drink, & Be Scary,” four days of fright-filled events in celebration of Halloween weekend. Visit with friends and family for Halloween-themed food, drinks, and performances, and the building itself will be in costume, decked out in dazzling and spine-chilling décor.
– FRI., OCT. 28TH: SCOUTMOB & HAND-PICKED ATLANTA’S HALLOWEEN PARTY—If you’ve got it, haunt it! For the first time ever, Ponce City Market will host Scoutmob & Hand-Picked Atlanta’s beloved, annual Halloween Party, now in its sixth year. Starting at 8pm, enjoy interactive art activations and installations from local Atlanta artists, plus small bites and ghoulish craft cocktails. General admission tickets ($45) and a limited number of VIP tickets will be available for purchase on Scoutmob & Hand-Picked Atlanta’s website starting the first week of October.
– SAT., OCT. 29th: HAUNTED HEIGHTS AT SKYLINE PARK—Take in panoramic city views from Ponce City Market’s rooftop at Skyline Park, along with an acrobatic performance and unlimited carnival game access. Head to the food stand for Halloween-themed, carnival-style food and drink. Tickets, which will be available via Eventbrite, are $35 per person (not including food or cocktails), and the party lasts from 8PM to midnight.
– SUN., OCT 30TH: SUNDAY SUPPER SOUTH— Something wicked this way comes: Chefs Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison host the James Beard Foundation’s 7th annual Sunday Supper South at Ponce City Market, with a cocktail hour at 5:30PM and dinner at 6:30PM. This year’s culinary roster celebrates an award-winning line-up of female chefs, including Savannah Haseler (Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards, Comet Pub & Lanes), Erika Council (Southern Souffle), Rebekah Turshen (City House), Cheryl Day (Back in the Day Bakery), Asha Gomez (Spice to Table), Whitney Otawka (Greyfield Inn), Kathleen Blake (The Rusty Spoon), Hilary White (The Hil), and Heather Machovec (O Ya). Furthering the theme of female camaraderie, the dinner will conjure inspiration from “The Witches of Eastwick,” the classic film based upon John Updike’s novel of the same name. Tickets are $250 for James Beard Foundation members and $275 for non-members. To reserve, or for more information, please call 404.365.0410 ext. 22.
– MON., OCT 31ST: TRICK-OR-TREAT—Bring the kids for an evening of trick-or-treating throughout Ponce City Market, where restaurants and shops will offer sweet treats for ghosts and ghouls alike. At 4pm, the neighborhood’s littlest monsters from The Suzuki School will parade in costume through Ponce City Market’s courtyard and Central Food Hall. Next, beware a troupe of traveling, dancing zombies performing classic moves from “Thriller” and headlined by The King of Pop himself (wink-wink). The choreographer for the show is the original choreographer from the “Thriller” music video, and zombies will boogie to the original video mix of the track. This event is free and open to the public. In a tee-up to Halloween, follow Ponce City Market on Instagram (@poncecitymarket) for laugh-out-loud profiles spotlighting zombies and revealing how each met his end.
