Best Festivals in Atlanta

Atlanta feels more like a community than a city because whenever any festival comes up, everyone is out with their blankets under trees, drinking and engrossed in anything that feels like home. Musical Festival in Atlanta comes up, and there you have it; the city transforms into a block party! The Arts and Food Festivals in the city are some of the best in the country, and people never miss the best ones. Here’s a list of festivals that Atlanta should flex because of how amazing they are. Hope that you find the one which fits your personality and passion.

1) Atlanta Dogwood Festival

Atlanta has the most unique things to celebrate, and one of them is the blooming of its native dogwood trees at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival . Piedmont Park fills up with live music, arts and crafts, food booths, an artist market, an international stage, and many more family-friendly activities on this day in Atlanta. There’s a reason that it is one of the best 200 fine arts festivals in the United States (Sunshine Artist Magazine).

2) Atlanta Jazz Festival

Without missing any Memorial Day weekend, the Atlanta Jazz Festival celebrates the heritage and variety of Jazz every year. Along with attracting artists from around the world, it is also the largest FREE jazz festival in the country. The enthusiasm to appreciate Jazz is clearly visible among people despite their crazy love for the genre. It is undeniably one of the liveliest times of the year.

3) Sweetwater 420 Fest

Named after the brewery’s 420 Extra Pale Ale, Sweetwater 420 Fest enriches Earth Day weekend every year! This three-day festival attracts people with magnets like live music, artists' markets, food trucks, and beer stations (a lot of them). It is one of the city’s best harbingers of spring, and for your entertainment, one tent is specially reserved for comedians and up-and-coming musical artists.

4) Shaky Knees Music Festival

Any festival with a gorgeous view, you ask? Bring your hands together for the Shaky Knees Music Festival , a proper indie music festival that goes on for three days at Central Park in Old Fourth Ward of Atlanta. It was founded in 2013 and covers indie rock, indie folk, country music, and alternative rock genres! No doubt that it is the highlight of the year!

5) Piedmont Park Arts Festival

Friendly and beloved medal festival medal goes to the Piedmont Park Arts Festival . These two days downtown are simply a reason to shop the most beautiful pieces from more than 250 artists and vendors at the market. Photographers, painters, leather workers, jewelry makers, glass blowers, and sculptors add to your time spent here, but it is a FREE event (more reasons to visit!).
