Grant Park Conservancy Summer Shade unFestival

It’s time to bid adieu to summer – but with a twist-  at the Grant Park Summer Shade unFestival! Keeping the health and safety of everyone in mind, this year’s event is mixing things up while still bringing the art, music, and food the Atlanta community has come to love over the past 19 years. 

Instead of a single afternoon or weekend in the park, supporters of the Grant Park Conservancy can enjoy an entire “Season” of the Summer Shade unFestival!

The season will kick off on August 2nd with the opening of race registration in addition to sales for raffle tickets, t-shirts, and wine!

Festival Season Kicks Off August 2nd, 2021

By embracing the unFestival in 2021, the in-person event can return in 2022 bigger and better than ever! Proceeds from this year’s event still benefit the Grant Park Conservancy, the organization responsible for maintaining the city’s oldest park.
