The SweetWater 420 Festival is an annual event that takes place in the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia. With four stages offering over 60 music acts, this three-day music and beer extravaganza is one of the largest festivals in Atlanta. The festival is attended by over 30,000 people every year. Its name derives from its organizer—Atlanta-based SweetWater Brewing Company. One of the main themes of the festival is environmental awareness and is held on the weekend closest to Earth Day. The festival features many environmental workshops at the Planet 420 Non-Profit Village.
