Georgia, better explored by Firelight

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19  //  7:30 PM - 11:30 PM

SweetWater Brewing Company

S'mores, beer, live music and campfires at the SweetWater Brewing Company - Firelight is back! 

An annual celebration of the Georgia Conservancy's Stewardship Trips Program, Firelight brings together Georgia Conservancy members and trip alumni, as well as introduces new folks to the work that we are doing across the state to share Georgia's most precious natural places and advocate for their stewardship and protection. 

Firelight 2016 will feature live music from Bobby's Shorts and All The Locals, outdoor campfires, an REI-sponsored s'mores bar, a silent auction, boiled peanuts from Plains, Georgia, some of Atlanta's best food trucks and, of course, SweetWater beer.

Any campfire celebration just wouldn't be the same without some good music. Firelight will feature two of our favorite Georgia-grown bands, Bobby's Shorts and All The Locals

Comprised of members from The Futurebirds, T. Hardy Morris, and The Whigs, Bobby's Shorts are perhaps the nation's best Grateful Dead cover band this side of Shakedown Street.

All The Locals is one of Atlanta's premier rock and soul outfits and have been a mainstay at a number of Georgia Conservancy events and trips.
