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!

West Midtown Market | Sunday, December 8, 2013 11AM-7PM

West Midtown Market December 8 2013One of the fun things of any city you live in…is the local activities that happen all around you. From festivals to street markets, there is always something happening in your city…and in Midtown Atlanta!

West Midtown Market | Sunday, December 8, 2013 11AM-7PM

A week from this Sunday, mark your calendar for the West Midtown Market at 1000 Marietta Street. This is one of those infamous “pop-up markets” where an organizer brings together local merchants into some unused space for a day of commerce! It’s really pretty cool stuff!

The West Midtown Market website has links to all the merchants that will be featured, as well as some restaurants that will be offering up some specials as well. I’ve been meaning to get to the 5 Seasons Brewery location in West Midtown….like forever! (I’ve been to the Prado location in Sandy Springs!) Now, I’ve got a double reason to go!

West Midtown is creating its own spice….with the warehouse-type space available, and numerous new restaurants as well as totally cool living options like White Provision...it’s a part of Atlanta you need to check out! Keep in mind, you a hop, skip and a jump from IKEA and Atlantic Station to keep your holiday shopping moving right along!

Hope we see you there!
