It's officially summer here in Atlanta, and what better way to kick off the season than with a local festival that offers something for the whole family?! Next weekend, June 29th and 30th, Atlanta will be host to the inaugural Old Fourth Ward Park Arts Festival, featuring more than 125 artists, many of which are from right here in Georgia!
O4W is one of Atlanta's hidden gems, and is home to a wide array of locally owned shops, restaurants, and more, making it a great place to celebrate our local talent. The Old Fourth Ward Park Arts Festival is taking place in the new Historic 4th Ward Park, one of the first completed urban park elements of the Atlanta Beltline Project. This modern park is beautifully constructed with bike and walking paths surrounding the pond, and a very cool playground for the kids.
