The Atlanta Arts Festival is an annual event that takes place the second weekend after Labor Day in Piedmont Park.

Due to a scheduling conflict regarding use of Piedmont Park we are again unable to obtain our traditional September dates, therefore there will be no 2016 festival; the event is on hiatus as we assess the best possible dates and/or a new venue.
