ATLANTA – April 4, 2022 – To Atlanta, 404 (one of four metro Atlanta area codes) is more than just a number. April 4th or four-oh-four is the annual moment to celebrate authentic Atlanta culture and the region’s undeniable global influence. 404 Day is a celebration of the unique attributes, people and industries seen only in our capital city.

Scholarship contributions have also been provided by the Atlanta Hawks, Papa John’s and Discover Atlanta.
