4 Festivals To Visit In Atlanta

What better way to enjoy the warm rays of the sun than at a festival.

The weather has finally broke in Atlanta and the south has something to say. You can count on the city to keep you thoroughly entertained throughout the spring and summer months. Festivals are clearly Atlanta’s thing; they’re are easy going, usually family friendly and a cute option for a date. While the pollen count rises you may be tempted to stay indoors but I assure you these aren’t festivals that you want to miss.


Open Saturdays, Sundays, and Memorial Day, 10:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Tickets range in price from $8 to $19

For eight weekends every spring, The Georgia Renaissance Festival brings a 16th-century European country fair to the Atlanta area. With nearly 1,000 characters wearing period costumes, the renaissance festival offers visitors a variety of activities from jousting tournaments to glass-blowing demonstrations to sword-swallowing shows. Info at Garenfest.com


The festival is free and open to the public. Saturday: 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Sunday: 1 – 8 p.m.

The Sweet Auburn spring festival offers a great mix of live music, food and fun for the whole family. Visitors are invited to walk the mile-and-a-half avenue lined with 10 stages and dozens of vendors with art, jewelry and fashion, all with the legacy of Sweet Auburn as the backdrop. And the children can get their fill of rides and games in the Fantastic Fun Zone. From the famed Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. served as pastor, to Auburn Avenue Research Library, home to chronicles of the rich history of African-Americans in Atlanta and beyond, the neighborhood itself is reason enough to attend!
