26 Atlanta Event Venues that Your Attendees Will Love

Catalina Guerra

Looking to plan an event in the Hollywood of the South? Check out this list of 26 amazing Atlanta event venues.

At the height of the Civil War, the residents of Atlanta were asked to evacuate the city before the Union soldiers arrived to defeat the confederate army. As a result of this battle, the city was destroyed by fire. In the one and a half centuries since then, the city has flourished.

Today, Atlanta is one of America’s most important business centers and is home to the world’s busiest airport with a terminal the size of 45 football fields! A once abandoned city, Atlanta is now filled with life as people from all over the world gather in Atlanta for events of all types, shapes, and forms.

If you’re looking to organize an event in Atlanta and are looking for an event venue, this is the guide for you.
