Fortunately, we have some awesome indoor options, like Fourth Fest at Cook Hall Atlanta at the W Hotel in Buckhead and Q100’s Red, White and Boom Party at Ventanas. Don’t forget the awesome performances in the DC area as well! Get decked out in your red, white, and blue party clothes and let’s cheers to ‘Merica !
Cook Hall, at the W Hotel Buckhead, will host Yacht Rock Revue, Moontower, Ralph Roddenbery, Donna Hopkins and friends on the 4th of July (indoors)! Food and drink specials will be offered during the entire event. Check out the great room rates too!
Join Q100 on the rooftop of Ventanas overlooking downtown Atlanta and Centennial Olympic Park!
