2017 Afternoon in the Country: Atlanta’s Finest Food Festival!

Afternoon in the Country Atlanta's Finest Food & Wine Festival! A recap of the 2017 event!

Three years ago I had the pleasure of attending Afternoon in the Country for the first time. I was so impressed with the event that I wrote a full review here. For the past few years my husband and I have been traveling to locations such as Dubai and South Africa so we missed this popular event. It was great to be back at the 2017 Afternoon in the Country this year! It was previously held in Serenbe but as of last year it was moved to the Foxhall Resort in Douglasville. We attended the 2017 Afternoon in the Country with a group of friends who also appreciate great food & wine. Atlanta’s best restaurants and chefs were in attendance along with wine, champagne and liquor distributors. It was rather hot for a fall day in Atlanta but everyone donned their finest country hats and boots. We all enjoyed music from Theresa Hightower and Her Jazz Band with singer/songwriter Diane Durrett. This is truly a beautiful outdoor event!
