The 49th Annual Atlanta Steeplechase is coming!


Question: When you think "Atlanta Steeplechase" do you think big crazy hats, skydiving, or a petting zoo and pig races?

How about all of the above? The 49th Annual Atlanta Steeplechase is April 19th and, as usual, it will be as much of a family-friendly event as it is a dressy, luxury party. Oh yeah, and some horses will be racing that day too. Tickets range from $25-$325 and it promises to be a fantastic time for the whole family.
