Summerfest Virginia Highlands June 5-6, 2010
The 27th Annual Virginia Highlands Summerfest is upon us! This event, sponsored by, and to raise money for the Virginia-Highlands Civic Association will be held on Saturday and Sunday. Summerfest is located on scenic and historic Virginia Avenue between North Highland Avenue and Park Drive.
Parking for the event is extremely limited. It’s a hike from the Midtown MARTA station, but you can take the No. 45 bus, from the North Avenue MARTA station or Midtown, or from Lanier Boulevard, University Avenue, or Stillwood Drive. This line doesn’t run on Sunday, and the Saturday route will detour onto Ponce de Leon Avenue, although the route to Summerfest from each end will not change.
The juried Artists Market will feature art in the following categories with a variety of prices:
- Mixed Media (2D & 3D)
