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!

Upcoming Events:  

An Evening in Scotland -- April 6th, 2018

TICKETS --->>>

Location: Chattanooga Brewing Company

Many of us probably want to go to the land of Braveheart, haggis and thistles, but few of us have actually made it....So on Tartan Day 2018, we're bringing a lil' bit of bonny Scotland to Chattanooga!
Festivities at Chattanooga Brewing Company will include Celtic Folk band Raven & Red, piping throughout the night by a member of Chattanooga Pipe and Drums, Scottish food (fish and chips woohoo), beer and more!
And for those of you who want a REAL taste of Scotland, we will host the **EXCLUSIVE** VIP experience upstairs with a single malt Scotch tasting from 3 different regions, and heavy hors d'oeuvrs (meat pies and Scottish eggs anyone?).
General admission tickets are $15 advance/$18 at the door and VIP tickets are $48 (advance purchase only). But we are expecting this event to sell out quickly, so you just might wanna get your ticket soon to ensure you get to be there. :)
21+ ONLY
We hope that you will join us on this glorious evening to...
"Be happy while you’re living, for you’re a long time deid.”
–Old Scots proverb
