The month of May is officially in full swing, and the city is really heating up with festivals, unique date nights, outdoor entertainment, and delicious food! Don’t miss what’s going on around the city with our Top 12 Happenings Around Atlanta This Weekend: Thursday – Sunday, May 12th – 15th, 2022.
From cocktails in Atlanta’s premier locations (think oceanic views at the Georgia Aquarium and skyline views over at Park Tavern and the Botanical Gardens!) to one of our favorite festivals over in the Virginia Highlands, we have you covered all weekend long!
Kick off the weekend by catching the last few days of Fernbank Museum’s Knights in Armor, and get some more family fun at the Chastain Arts and Crafts Festival for some great gifts and inspiration! The weekend ahead is filled with festivals for all ages, art, delicious craft cocktails, and so much more.
We have a lineup with exciting ways to experience the beauty and bustle of the city – whether you’re flying solo this weekend, looking for some time to connect as a family, or even sneak in a cocktail or morning brew with your special someone. However you choose to kick off the weekend, join us as we enjoy art, fresh food, and more!
Now that Christmas is over and you start to take the decorations down, you may think to yourself, “What am I going to do with this tree?”It’s time to Bring One for the Chipper!
Event Details Saturday | January 8th, 2021
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. This annual Georgia Christmas tree recycling program has recycled almost 6 million trees, recycling them into mulch donated to playgrounds, government beautification projects, parks, and individual yards.
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 The Big Guy in Red in 2021 and snap a picture with your family and pets.
The holidays may look a bit different after these past two years, but we’ve put our elves to work to help you find Santa no matter where you are in the city.
Don’t miss out on seeing The Big Man in Red as he makes all his stops along the way!
Due to concerns over the COVD-19 pandemic, this event has been cancelled for 2021.

If you purchased your home last year and have not already done so, remember to file for a Homestead Exemption. This can save you thousands of dollars in property taxes!
While some states provide this exemption automatically, in Georgia a homestead exemption must be applied for. Depending on the county, this can be done online, by fax, by mail or in person. You only have to apply for the exemption once. The exemption remains as long as you reside in the home as your primary residence.
