Atlanta 2nd Annual ¡Viva Tequila Festival!
The ¡Viva Tequila! Festival returns to Atlanta on Saturday, October 26 under the tents at The Promenade at Piedmont Park. The ¡Viva Tequila! Festival is an exciting one-day festival that highlights the food, drink, and culture of Mexico in a fun, upscale setting. The festival is dedicated to teaching the history and artistry of tequila as America’s new favorite sipping liquor and will feature delicious tastes from Atlanta’s best local restaurants. The event is hosted by famed tequila importer and connoisseur Juan Bonilla and Atlanta event producer Sean O’Keefe.
Twenty-five top Atlanta restaurants are paired with 25 of the world’s finest boutique tequilas. Attendees also will enjoy live music and other performances, plus local and imported artisan goods.
Did Someone Say Tequila?
“Our goal is to give guests a completely different understanding of how the spirit works in a gastronomic context. Many people have bad experiences with tequila when they are younger, but we are trying to teach them to give tequila another chance,” says Juan Bonilla. “The greatest reward is how people’s perceptions change once they realize how good quality tequila tastes and how well it pairs with different types of food.”

¡Viva Tequila! Festival Gives Back
A portion of the festival’s proceeds benefits the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness and educating women, their families and the health care community about risks, symptoms, and treatment of ovarian cancer leading to earlier detection. Bonilla feels strongly about serving high-quality products that won’t increase the risk for diseases, and GOCA’s cause is one that is close to his heart.
