music midtown will have atl. rocking...but for a slower pace check out sandy spring's annual festival sept. 17 - 18th
Sixteen miles. That's the distance from Atlanta to Sandy Springs. So, if Music Midtown is not your cup of tea, check out Sandy Springs this weekend which is celebrating it's 31st annual festival.
Each year, over 30,000 attendees gather at Heritage Green to shop the street-lined booths with more than 600 artists, crafters, and vendors, and enjoy good times with music, food, and fun.
The Sandy Springs Society Entertainment Lawn and Stage offers great live music, dancing and entertainment throughout the two days of activities. Sports enthusiasts can compete to qualify for the Peachtree Road Race in the fast-paced Sandy Springs Lightning 10K and 5K. Kids will have a great time participating in all the children’s games at the Children’s Park. Visit the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and celebrate the heritage of our community through interactive crafts, demonstrations, and exhibits both inside and outside the Museum. Each year brings new surprises!
The Sandy Springs Festival is the largest fundraiser for Heritage Sandy Springs, a non-profit organization that operates Heritage Green, the four-acre city park in the heart of Sandy Springs. Founded in 1985 to oversee the preservation of the original “sandy springs” and the restoration of the Williams-Payne House, Heritage Sandy Springs presents a year round calendar of educational, cultural and heritage programs, and events for the community. Located in the center of the Sandy Springs business district, the site also includes green space gardens with a gazebo bandstand, the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum, the Sandy Springs Society Entertainment Lawn, a Research Library and Archive, and event venues including Heritage Hall.
