For the past 17 years, thousands of music and food loving festival goers gather annually at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park to celebrate the Oyster Crawfish Festival. Offering a day of Mardi Gras inspired fun on Saturday, February 29, 2020, Park Tavern will once again serve up approximately ten thousand pounds of fresh Louisiana crawfish that are flown in the night before along with live music from the fiercely soulful band, The Dirty Guv’Nahs, an acclaimed six-piece brotherhood from Knoxville, TN known for their electrifying rock and roll performances. Athens, GA-based Stop Light Observations and the quirky, indie hip-hop group, Little Stranger, will get the party started and warm up the stage as guests sip on signature cocktails and cold brews from a souvenir cup and dive into platters boasting 1.5 pounds of piping hot and perfectly spiced boiled crawfish served with new potatoes, corn and sausage. Additional festival food offerings include Bluepoint and Gulf freshly shucked oysters on the half shell, buckets of steamed oysters with drawn butter, and a fried station with fried oysters, shrimp, and chicken baskets.

ABOUT PARK TAVERN:
Park Tavern, a favorite neighborhood bar, restaurant, brewery and events facility, is located on the Atlanta BeltLine in the heart of Midtown on the corner of 10th Street and Monroe overlooking Piedmont Park and the Midtown skyline. The building was originally built in 1905 as horse stables for local racing enthusiasts and then transformed into a golf clubhouse in 1928. Although expanded and renovated over the years, the building still features some of the original woodwork and stone from the historic clubhouse. Today, Park Tavern combines the historic charm of the site with the modern facilities including handcrafted beers brewed on-site, a full restaurant, expansive patio, private event spaces, a seasonal ice skating rink and more. The menu features classic favorites such as burgers, tacos, salads and sandwiches as well as a full sushi bar serving a wide variety of fresh sushi rolls.
