Bringing the World to Chattanooga

Here at Mad Priest Events, we recognize and celebrate the diverse cultures present in Chattanooga. And yet, there’s still room for more--more education, more collaboration, more appreciation--surrounding our diversity. That’s why we’re hosting events around the city that let people experience the world and its beautiful tapestry of food, culture, and tradition...right here in their own backyard.

Our events provide an immersive cultural experience that will include learning about cultural rituals, tasting traditional culinary art, and hearing new genres of music. We are bringing the world to Chattanooga in a new way, and we look forward to you experiencing it with us!

A special Pops con Amor treat or a refreshing Venezuelan-inspired cocktail. All set to the music of world-renowned Venezuelan artist, composer, and Grammy nominee, Frank Quintero.
