Georgia Aquarium will be the host venue for next year’s Taste of the Championship event. The event will take place on Sunday, January 7, 2018, as a part of fan activities leading up to the 2018 College Football Playoff Championship game.

Taste of the Championship will feature food and beverage samples from premier Atlanta restaurants and breweries for fans to enjoy. Guests will get to experience the best of the Atlanta food scene while being surrounded by amazing views of marine life and celebrating an important initiative of the College Football Playoff Foundation, Extra Yard for Teachers. Proceeds from the event will go towards the Extra Yards for Teachers platform, an initiative that supports and honors teachers around the United States.

Georgia Aquarium is located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, just a few blocks from the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium where the 2018 College Football Playoff Championship game will take place on Monday, January 8, 2018. Recently voted best tourist attraction in Atlanta, the Aquarium is home to tens of thousands of aquatic animals, including four whale sharks and four manta rays, and is the largest aquarium in North America.
