ALPHARETTA, Ga. — There will be grilling, music, games and of course, college football on Sept. 7, as the Alpharetta community celebrates with a tailgating party on Old Roswell Street in Alpharetta.

The occasion: the UGA vs. South Carolina game, which will be displayed on an LED screen that’s 8-feet tall and 12-feet wide.

The event will feature up to 20 grills along the street, with fare being cooked up by various community groups, restaurants and assorted vendors. 

“We didn’t want it just to be professional grillers; we wanted it to be a real community activity,” said Mary Ulich, director of operations at the Lionheart School.

All proceeds benefit the nonprofit Lionheart School, which provides a specialized learning environment.

The participants of the grilling are varied indeed.

Some examples are the North Fulton Alliance of Young Professionals, Alpharetta United Methodist Church, Sis and Moon’s artist collaborative, various restaurants from the area and even a group of Monday Night Football fans.

The fare will include a plethora of foods.

Whatever can be cooked on a grill will be there – from hot dogs to burgers to brats to pulled pork and everything in between, Ulich said.

There will be prizes for the top grillers, which will be awarded at halftime.

In addition to the tailgating and the football game, there will be art provided by the “Lionheartisans,” the student art group at the school, as well as music performed by the UGA Red Coat Alumni Band.

“So you can see, it’s kind of a fun mix of the community,” said Ulich. “What we were really going for here was an event that welcomed all aspects of the community.”
