Sun Is Out, Fun Is Out During the Annual Grant Park Summer Shade Festival

The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival will once again welcome music and art lovers to Atlanta’s oldest park for two days of nonstop fun on Saturday, August 25th and Sunday, August 26th.

For more than a decade, Atlanta art and music lovers have flocked to Grant Park each August to bid adieu to summer at the Summer Shade Festival. We’ve got two days of outdoor fun planned for all ages including a 5K Run for the Park, food trucks, craft beer, and a music line up that just gets better every year.

The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival kicks off on Saturday morning with the Adams Realtors Run for the Park 5K. Runners, walkers, and strollers are welcome to participate. With awards by age group, a tot trot, and a stroller race, the Adams Realtors 5K raises funds to support the Grant Park Conservancy.

It wouldn’t be a festival without something special for our young visitors, and Summer Shade has got that covered. Children of all ages can enjoy the Summer Shade Festival Kids Zone presented by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Hughes Spalding. The Kids Zone features art activities, as well as active options such a bungee jump and more. Don’t worry—we’ll keep the kiddos entertained!

So, bring your blanket, bring the whole family, but don’t bring any pets, and spend summer’s final weekend at the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival presented by the Beacon Atlanta!

It’s always fun to experience something new! At the Woodhaven at Park Bridge Apartments in Alpharetta, Georgia, we love to keep you up-to-date about exciting events happening in the neighborhood and greater community. We hope you make plans to attend this event today!
