Atlanta loves festivals.
Sweet Auburn Fest
Film Festival 365
Virginia Highland SummerFest
And the list goes on... and on...
Most all these are free, and easy to get to.
If you're a fan of Jazz music, chances are you'd love the Atlanta Jazz Fest. Grab some chairs, pitch a tent, lay out a blanket, bring the kids, and spend the day in the park, listening to some good ol', hand-picked performers.
I'll admit, I liked Yolanda's cover of "Say My Name" better than the original (as popularzed by Destiny's Child).
Lastly, no festival would be complete without it's share of street vendors. My personal favorites are the local art dealers. You can usually get an amazing deal on one-of-a-kind find.
Next time you're in Atlanta over the spring/summer/fall time of year, catch a festival!
