CL’s annual guide to Labor Day Weekend’s craziness, plus 90 fall events!

Labor Day Weekend is upon us. Every year, people of all stripes - sci-fi cosplayers, NASCAR faithfuls, the literary elite, rockabilly greasers, and more - descend upon Atlanta for its onslaught of end-of-summer fun. In anticipation of all this weekend has to offer, CL has created a handy chart to help navigate the weekend’s best events - from the who’s who of the Decatur Book Festival to how to get a date at the Atlanta Weekender to what to pair with your light saber at Dragon Con. Our critics also pulled together a Fall Events Preview with more than 90 festivals, concerts, plays, art events, and more to help fill your calendar through Thanksgiving.
