Tis the season to be jolly! Get ready for the peak of seasonal events – and some majorly festive fun – by getting the most out of your weekend plans with our 25 Fun & Festive Happenings Around Atlanta This Weekend: Thursday – Sunday, December 7th – 10th, 2023.
Kick off the weekend on Thursday as Holiday on the Town celebrates all things holly and jolly at Town Brookhaven! The Anne Irwin Fine Art Gallery also kicks off the weekend with a new holiday group exhibit, followed by some immersive mix-and-mingling at a special Fernbank After Dark. The family fun will carry you into the weekend with art, flavor, and fun over at the Virginia Highlands Winterfest through Saturday!
As we continue thorough the weekend, Callanwolde’s Winter House closes out the weekend with twinkling lights, laughter, and delectable treats. Be sure to get the kiddos and enjoy a family-friendly weekend shopping the Decatur Holiday Marketplace, lacing up those running shoes along the Atlanta BeltLine, exploring woodland wonders at Chattahoochee Nature Center, and even spotting a certain red-nosed reindeer.
The winter wonder continues all weekend (and season!) long with exciting installations at all your favorite stops from the Georgia Aquarium to Fernbank Museum, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and Ponce City Market.
As always, we have you covered with the city’s best Farmers Markets and eclectic flavors of Inman Park. Through all seasons, we will continue to have a spectacular lineup of fun each week – with events for couples, families, and running solo.
He’s making a list, and he’s checking it twice – Santa Claus is coming to town! We’ve put together a list where you can be sure to spot Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick in 2023 and snap a picture with your family while finding some festive fun along the way.
This year, a few new favorite spots have popped up in addition to Atlanta’s classic favorites. From Seaside Saint Nick at Georgia Aquarium to Stylish Santa at Buckhead Village, you’ll even spot Santa in some unexpected locations! Catch Santa illuminating extraordinary live trees, sip on hot cocoa as you sing holiday carols, and maybe even spot a few of his reindeer as you search your way through the city to catch the Big Guy in Red (or green!).
The holidays may rush by, but we’ve put our elves to work to help you find Santa no matter where you are in the city. So don’t miss out on seeing The Big Man in Red as he makes all his stops through Christmas Eve!

You may be wondering what to do with your Christmas tree after the holiday, and there’s no better time to Bring One for the Chipper!
2023 Event Details
Saturday | January 7th
Instead of placing the tree on the curb (which will eventually end up in a landfill), bring it to one of the several “Bring One for the Chipper” tree recycling events.
The annual Georgia Christmas tree recycling program has recycled over 6 million trees and counting, recycling them into mulch donated to playgrounds, government beautification projects, parks, and individual yards.
It’s officially September, and we have a long weekend ahead in celebration of Labor Day! So before you grab that pumpkin latte, bid adieu to Summer with everything Atlanta has to offer over the upcoming holiday weekend.
Some of our favorite highlights include lacing up our tennis shoes for a great cause, the newest art from Neha Patel, a Luau on The Roof at Ponce City Market, and live music from The High to Park Tavern all throughout the weekend!
Whether you’re looking for a way to engage the kiddos, a night out with your special someone, or some incredible flavor and art, we have you covered with our Top 7 Labor Day Happenings Around Atlanta All Weekend Long!
