Sweetwater 420 in 2016

It’s that time of year again. Sweetwater 420 festival is less than a week away and everyone planning on going is praying on the weather.

We’re all doing our best rain dance. Sure, rain may be on the radar already for this week and next but hopefully, it holds off during the hours of the festival Friday through Sunday. Either way, there’s one clear truth of the matter…it’s that it doesn’t matter. Music and beer fans will still converge on Centennial Olympic Park even if it’s pouring and full of mud because that is what we’re used to in April in Atlanta! But just in case you’re wondering, here’s what the forecast looks like on Tuesday.

There are lots of hotels, Airbnb’s, and friends’ apartments to stay at in Atlanta! Although the A has a bad reputation for not being super pedestrian friendly, there really are many good options for transportation and carpooling. Lyft (use code:420FEST2016 for discounts) and Uber are reliable in the area, as well as Marta! Sweetwater suggests using the Peachtree and CNN Center Stations, which will both have markers directing patrons to the festival grounds. Parking can be purchased for each day – HERE
