The Canstructions will be disassembled and all goods will be transferred to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
You've worked hard to build your structure - now it's time to celebrate! Bring friends and family to see the structures and party on top of the Atlanta skyline at the Nelson Mullins law office.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door - be sure to buy your tickets HERE in advance! Each guest will receive 3 drink tickets and will get the chance to enjoy some of the delicious hors d'oeuvres provided by Jerry Dilts & Associates Catering.
Bryan Craft will keep the celebration lively with great music and our awards show will be hosted by the gracious Melissa Carter, morning host on B98.5. At the end of the night we'll be presenting the Atlanta Community Food Bank with, what we hope, is the biggest check yet in our 18 years of competitions - you won't want to miss it!
The completed Canstruction® designs will become an art exhibit on view to the public. At the end of the exhibitions, all of the food used in the structures is donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank for distribution to on-going feeding programs.
Be sure to take a walk through the lobbies at 171, 201 and 271 17th Street to get an up close look at this years structures. The Food Bank will have donation barrels out and any donations of canned goods are greatly appreciated.
Parking at Atlantic Station is FREE for the first two hours!
Competing teams, led by architects and engineers, showcase their talents by designing giant sculptures made entirely out of canned and packaged foods. The resulting structures become an art exhibit that goes on view to the public in each city where a competition is held.
You can register your team by completing the Call For Entries Form on the Team page of the site. Your team is officially registered once we have received your $250 registration fee (click HERE to pay online).
This year the structures will be built and displayed in the lobbies of 171, 201, and 271 17th Street at Atlantic Station. Be sure to look for the structures as you drive past the lobbies on 17th street!
The Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) Product Rescue Center (PRC) is the area of the Food Bank where all food drive and salvaged food items are brought to be inspected and packaged by volunteers for distribution to more than 600 nonprofit partner agencies.
ACFB trucks pick up goods and drop them off at the PRC every day. Teams of trained volunteers then inspect, sort and pack these goods. This area of operation is crucial as it ensures that retail salvage, and food drive donations will be safe for distribution to people in need.
This great team-building opportunity is provided to those teams who have registered for the 2016 Canstruction® event. Anyone from a firm with a registered team may volunteer.
Is your team new to Canstruction Atlanta this year? Returning veterans? No matter your level of experience, please plan to attend our Team Kick-Off meeting on Thursday, August 11th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
We'll cover rules and regulations, provide insight on ways to raise funds for your cans, offer tips and tricks to help with choosing a design and will have a Q&A session as well. Water and light snacks will be provided along with kick-off materials you can reference throughout the competition.
We're excited to see everyone and kick the 2016 season off!
