Now that the Southern summer is winding down, the weather is perfect for a weekend outdoors. In celebration of the coming season, the Fall Festival on Ponce will feature up to 175 (mostly) local artists and crafters in the chain of parks along Ponce de Leon Avenue from September 15th to September 16th. Yes, the famed Olmsted Parks will be feted with art for the second year in a row.
As you stroll through the neighborhood, you’ll enjoy:
- Fine art and crafts
- A street market
- Acoustic music
- A children’s area
- Local food and beverage concessions including “gourmet” food trucks
The parks, which are down the street from the Fernbank Museum, were named for their designer, Frederick Olmsted, Sr.. Considered the father of American landscape architecture by many, Olmsted created the parks with the community’s enjoyment in mind. Today, the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance renovates and maintains these green spaces to preserve them for generations to come.
The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces along with volunteer artists organized the Fall Festival on Ponce to benefit the Druid Hills community including the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance and the Paideia School. If you would like to volunteer, please email Lisa Windle at firstname.lastname@example.org (Write “Volunteer for Festival on Ponce” in the subject line.)
WHEN: Sunday, September 15 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
