A free neighborhood festival where you bump into the kind of cool neighbors you'd want to crush Pabst Blue Ribbon and get high with. Edgy and grunge creatives alike step out for this backyard-vibe of a good time in East Atlanta Village. This year's music lineup included Material Girls, Flamingo Shadow, and Gold Yard. Kiddos are welcome and you're pretty much guaranteed to run into Cousin Dan, PBR Luis, and Max Cooper - three people everyone assumes are famous, just from the looks of 'em.

Atlanta is a city of festivals. There’s the Dogwood Festival at Piedmont Park, Pride Week, the return of the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Downtown Festival and on and on. Our favorite is the NATIONAL BLACK ARTS FESTIVAL, which transforms the city for 10 days each July into a cultural haven, where dance troupes, musicians and artists pay homage to the African diaspora. This year’s highlights included performances by Grammy-nominated composer and trumpeter Hannibal Lokumbe and the Forces of Nature Dance Theater Company. In addition, there was the Pan-African Film Festival and an eclectic artists’ market.
