The Downtown Seder Returns on April 6th Feat. Speech (Arrested Development), David Broza, Ricky McKinnie (Blind Boys of Alabama), and More!


Downtown Seder 2019 features an all-star lineup of performers and VIPs, who will dine among guests, leading in Atlanta in City Winery’s wildly imaginitive and interactive annual Passover Seder dinner, hosted by City Winery founder, Michael Dorf.

Special guests include David Broza, Speech from Arrested Development, and Ricky McKinnie from Blind Boys of Alabama. More guests to be announced!

The 2019 Downtown Seder will feature guests seated at elegant, long family-style tables, each set with the traditional accoutrements, including Seder plate and Matzoh.

Performers, who are seated with guests throughout the room, will creatively expound on various sections of the Passover Haggadah (Seder text), which has been specially developed for this night.

In an approximately 2 hour program, all of the customary traditions will be followed, including drinking of four glasses of wine (produced by City Winery), discussing the four different children, reciting the four questions, and eating a delicious  vegetarian meal  (kosher option avail per request) prepared by City Winery’s Executive Chef.

What makes the Downtown Seder different from all other Seders is the addition of artists each offering their unique interpretation of the important lessons from the timeless Exodus story – the universal message of the journey from slavery to freedom.

“The Downtown Seder is specifically being held prior to the start of Passover so that guests might bring the inspiration into their homes and make their own Seder dinner more relevant,” said Dorf.

A limited number of tickets for the City Winery Seder are available, priced at $70, $110, $145. Vegetarian and kosher-style meals are included, with a Glatt Kosher option available for an additional $25.00/person.

This year, we will be taking the Downtown Seder on the road so please tell you friends and family!
