Summer Shade Festival

For the past 20 years, Atlanta residents have flocked to Grant Park on the last weekend of August to say goodbye to summer. The festival benefits the Grant Park Conservancy and includes art, music, food and a kids' zone. Residents can also run in the 5K race prior to the festival. 

In the Kids' Zone, kids can enjoy the sensory tables filled with water beads and moon sand, or they can create their own spin art masterpiece. They can also participate in instrument making. 

Families are also able to purchase tickets or a wristband to go on the bungee trampoline, climb an obstacle course, enjoy the giant slide or play in the toddlers' playland.

Dog are not allowed at the festival!
