Atlanta is a city that is renowned for its vibrant skateboarding culture, boasting a rich history and strong presence in clothing, vernacular culture, DIY culture, and music. Every year, the Atlanta Open is held as an international figure skating competition that welcomes domestic and foreign skaters who are current members of their respective federations. This event draws participants to the city's hotels, restaurants, shops and other tourism-related businesses. 45 experienced and high-level judges will officiate the competition, and the winners will be awarded medals.

The late Olympic official and life member Susan Johnson will be honored by rewarding an intermediate goal scorer with the annual Susan Johnson Award.
