Chamblee rocks again this summer, with three FREE outdoor concerts for 2023.
All the concerts take place at Chamblee’s new City Hall, located at 3518 Broad Street in the downtown Chamblee entertainment district. There is a an area of artificial turf where you can set up blankets or chairs.
This a great location, because it’s easy to take MARTA to Chamblee Station, exit the station to the rear, and walk to downtown Chamblee.
But this is also a major change from previous years — because Fourth of July fireworks will NOT take place at Keswick Park, as usual.
Concerts begin at 6:30 p.m.
After the July 4th concert, fireworks start at 9 p.m. You can read more about that here.
While the concerts are FREE, you can upgrade your experience by purchasing a VIP table. You’ll find details on ChambleeRocks.net.
The big news is the NEW open container policy in downtown Chamblee! All the details are below.

NEW open container policy!
Chamblee becomes the latest municipality in the Atlanta metro area to allow outdoor alcohol consumption in its entertainment district!
Starting June 1, 2023, you can purchase alcohol from a licensed establishment in downtown Chamblee and carry it with you, as long as you adhere to the ordinance guidelines.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Hours for outdoor alcohol consumption are 9 a.m to 10 p.m.
- Open containers are prohibited outside those hours.
- You still must be 21 or older to purchase alcohol.
- Alcohol-licensed restaurants will dispense your drink in a clearly marked plastic cup.
- Beer and wine cannot exceed 16 fluid ounces; for distilled spirits it’s 12 ounces.
- You cannot bring your own alcohol to the city for open container consumption.
There will be food trucks on site for all concerts, as well as designated tents where you can buy beer and wine.
But in case you don’t know, downtown Chamblee has shrugged off its “Antique Row” reputation to become a bustling restaurant scene. Come early on concert nights to take advantage of these dining options, all located within a walkable area:
- Vintage Pizzeria
- Gus’s Fried Chicken
- Antiguo Lobo
- The Frosty Caboose
- Himalayas Indian Restaurant
Getting to the downtown Chamblee business district
Downtown Chamblee is embracing transit-oriented development — and the business district is an easy walk from the Chamblee MARTA Station.
If you live anywhere on the Gold Line, MARTA is a no-brainer. Get off at Chamblee Station, then follow the signs pointing to the buses (not to Chamblee Tucker Rd) to exit the platform. In the middle of the station, one level below, you’ll find a short covered walkway that is marked Peachtree Rd. This is the shortest walk to the concert.
(TL;DR version — if you take the train, do not exit the station via the front door! Find the walkway to Peachtree Rd and the back door.)
There is a limited amount of parking in the Chamblee downtown business district. Please find an alternative means of transportation, other than driving!
There is a new designated rideshare park, located at 5374 Peachtree Road. Please use this address for pickup and dropoff by Lyft, Uber, etc.
Each concert will also have an Uber discount code — we’re working on tracking that down, so stay tuned!
After 6 p.m., you can park at Winter Construction, located at 5616 Peachtree Road. This is 5 minute walk to the concert location.
For the 4th of July concert, and fireworks, you can park at Keswick Park and ride a shuttle to the concert.
Know before you go…
The concerts are family-friendly but you can not bring pets.
You cannot bring in outside alcohol. Outside food is permitted, but only small (under 30 quarts) coolers are allowed.
No glass containers, please.
Lawn chairs and blankets are fine, but tents or canopies are not allowed.
These events are rain or shine so dress accordingly.
If the weather threatens to become dangerous, look at Chamblee’s social media pages to find out if an event is canceled or rescheduled.
