Atlanta Events Calendar – May 2015

Group of young friends toasting in a barLet’s face it. When you live in a city (well actually a METRO area) like Atlanta, there is lots and lots….and lots of things to do. Sometimes, the events you want to attend will even overlap…shreek!

I know when I’m searching for things to do, I’m wondering WHAT is there to do or what is going on?

I found an awesome list of events from Eventbrite that certainly seems to have a variety of things going on!

Atlanta Events Calendar – May 2015

FREE Admission to Atlanta Attractions

HIgh Museum Midtown Atlanta
High Museum Midtown Atlanta

I’ll be the first to admit (and if you have lived anyplace for any length of time) that I’ve lived in Atlanta for many years, and there are some of these attractions I’ve never, ever seen! But knowing there is an opportunity to see them for… FREE…well just who can pass up an offer like that.

FREE Admission to Atlanta Attractions

Especially take note of the Atlanta History Center and the High Museum as some great options. And the Georgia State Parks and Historic sites can be great for when you are looking for that Saturday or Sunday jaunt out of Midtown Atlanta to experience something new.

Midtown Atlanta Art Festivals | Festival On Ponce April 11-12, 2015

One of the awesome things I love about Midtown Atlanta is the festivals. It seems like every time you turn around, there is another one to attend. I’ve certainly had to go into “look but don’t buy” mode as I’ve got no more room unless I part with something. But it’s always amazing to see what these people can create!

Midtown Atlanta Art Festivals | Festival On Ponce April 11-12, 2015

Festival On Ponce April 11-12, 2015Festival on Ponce is another great festival that takes place in a park we often drive by but forget it’s really a park…Olmsted Linear Park! The park runs along side Ponce De Leon Avenue after it passes the intersection of Briarcliff/Moreland and continues past the Fernbank Museum.

The Festival hours are Saturday, 10am-6pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.

Over 125 displays of arts and crafts, folk and outsider art will be there along with food and beverage! And its…..FREE!  The Festival On Ponce is sponsored in part by The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces. They sponsor numerous festivals around Atlanta and you can find those at their website!

You can also learn more about Olmsted Park from the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance.

Looking forward to seeing you in the Park!

You’ll also be close to the new Ponce City Market if they have any of their retail open as well as the new Krog Street Market. Lots of things to see and do in Midtown Atlanta and the surrounding area!
