Event Highlights

Adams Realtors Run for the Park 5k
August 27th

What better way to kick off the weekend than with a scenic run through the historic Grant Park neighborhood? Runners, walkers and strollers are welcome to participate with a tot trot and a stroller race! Awards will be presented by age group.Summer shade food

The Food
New in 2022: Due to the completion of the Atlanta Zoo construction, the festival footprint will return to a similar layout of years ago, but with a slightly smaller footprint due to the pandemic’s effect on festival traffic. While accommodating as many food vendors as possible, there will be a reduction in this year’s vendor lineup. Guests can still expect an incredible variety of flavors and flare! 

Kids Zone

Free for kids of all ages, the activities at the Kids Zone include sensory tables filled with water beads and moon sand, spin art masterpiece stations, magic, and instrument making. Tickets and wristbands are also available for purchase to enjoy the Bungee Trampoline, a challenge on the obstacle course, play at the toddler’s playland, and the giant slide! 

The Music – Lineup TBA
