The Atlanta Pancakes & Booze Art Show is a traveling exhibition of 100 artists, with pancakes, live music, body painting, and multimedia displays at GA Freight Depot for age 21+. Pay cash at the door or buy a line-jumper ticket online.

 

“As you may have guessed, we are an art show, but we are not your typical art gallery. Since 2009 we’ve been filling the best venues in over 30 cities around the world with your favorite local artists, photographers, bands, and DJ’s. We focus on keeping the work on display local and original to help artists of all types sell their work while they’re still alive (why does it take dying to gain recognition?). Each show usually features between 50-150 local artisans, a unique lineup of live musicians and/or DJs, live painting, body painting, along with other forms of entertainment. Oh, and of course PANCAKES!

We seek to bring the art community and those outside the community together by creating an upbeat art show that appeals to the masses. Through the shows we create an environment where artists, potential buyers, and pancake fanatics alike can make connections with several different types of people within their own communities. “
