To all you riders, bike enthusiasts and Atlanta bicycle community, come participate in our 2nd Annual Atlanta Moon Ride, a 6.5 mile night bike ride through some of Atlanta’s coolest neighborhoods.  This is a chance to safely cruise through Atlanta neighborhoods at night without having to battle traffic as our good friends with the APD will be blocking our route.  This event is open to anyone who wants to hit the streets, whether you’ve got a street bike, a mountain bike, a wheel chair or a good ole cruiser. Bring the family! Costumes are encouraged!   

Summer Wined Up

Stroll the streets and sample wines as you stop in and visit with our downtown merchants. This is an event that you don't want to miss. Tickets will be available for $20 in advance and $25 the day of the event.  Ticket sales are limited to 500. 


Friday & Saturday

AtlantaFest

AtlantaFest features 4 days of music and ministry from today's top Christian artists and communicators at an affordable cost, and is known as "THE Christian Music Festival" to thousands of people from hundreds of churches across the Southeast.  AtlantaFest is set in the heart and beauty of Stone Mountain Park, and offers guests not only the music and ministry of the festival, but access to the sights and activities found only at Stone Mountain.

Peachtree Corners Festival

Celebrate in Peachtree Corners this weekend with food, local arts and crafts, up and coming performers along with established favorites, a kids zone with balloons, bounce houses, and face painting, a performance car show, and a 5k/1k run and Tot Trot.

Indie Music Festival:

This year’s lineup features 40 talented indie bands and musicians from across America playing in several Atlanta locations including at The Music Room, Smith’s Old Bar, The Basement, and Wonderroot.

 

Saturday

East Point Possums Show

This show is billed as the southeast’s largest drag extravaganza, with an over-the-top evening show in downtown East Point.  For the past 16 years, the event has raised tens of thousands of dollars for several organizations in Atlanta including Lost n Found Youth.  Now, after more than a decade, it’s one of the most well attended drag shows in the southeast and has decided to reach out to other non-profits. 

Tunes from the Tomb

This annual, all-day music festival features musicians performing in and amongst Oakland’s extraordinary monuments, mausoleums, and renowned gardens.  Local food trucks and beverages will be available.  All proceeds benefit Historic Oakland Foundation.

The Roswell Lavender Festival

The fourth annual Roswell Lavender Festival is sure to be bigger and better than ever. Each year the event has grown exponentially.  New this year is a textile demonstration and a beer and wine garden with lavender beer!  Lavender food samples, kids’ zone, The Zen Zone (yoga & Pilates), live music and arts and crafts will be available.

Grill w/the Falcons

Even though the NFL 2014 season doesn’t start for another 12 weeks, the Atlanta Falcons and the Mall of Georgia are already teaming up with fans, friends and families to celebrate the tradition of game day tailgating!  We are looking for the best Falcons spirit, game day traditions and, of course, for the irresistible and mouth-watering food. This event is free and open to the public! All proceeds will benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.


Saturday & Sunday

Blairsville Scottish Festival & Highland Games
