Atlantic is the Coca-Cola Capital of Iowa, and we welcome everyone to join us for our annual Coca-Cola Days Celebration. 2015 will be the 23rd annual Coca-Cola Days, set for September 25th- 26th. Our celebration is the second largest mini-convention of Coca-Cola collectors in the United States. (Second only to Atlanta, Georgia!) The theme for 2015 is "Bottling Happiness" to celebrate the 100th year of the Contour Bottle.
