FUN FOR EVERYONE: A happy festival-goer soaks up the sun at the Atlanta Arab Festival.
 

The Atlanta Arab Festival is back for its 13th run, creating a unique and immersive Arab cultural experience that welcomes all ages and backgrounds, where the Alif Institute will be transforming itself into a hub of Arab adventure. Prepare to be transported by the souk featuring books, arts and crafts, paintings, groceries, rugs, jewelry, traditional home accessories and clothes, and more. New this year is the Bazaar, overflowing with handmade goods from local artisans. After you shop til you drop, stop by the Arab world food court for a delicious dining destination filled with dishes from local Arab restaurants. The festival will also provide an array of games from carnival-style attractions for kids (and fun-loving adults) to backgammon and barjees for everyone.

While this is a celebration of the Arab culture, it’s also an opportunity to learn more about it with educational displays like the “Arab Experience,” an interactive exhibit highlighting traditional features of Arab culture, complete with live demonstrations. And of course, no festival is complete without entertainment, which the Atlanta Arab Festival is oozing with, from folk dancing, singing, storytelling, traditional fashion shows and music, including performances by DJ FADI, Samer Ackleh, Edeliegba Senior Dance Ensemble, gulf dance by Sanam Studios, Elizabeth Wilhelm dance group, and bellydancer Rhuby Naiad.

Free-$5. Sat., April 21. 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sun., April 22. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Alif Institute, 3288 Marjan Drive. www.alifinstitute.org/events/atlanta-arab-festival/.

Food-O-Rama Events is ready to unleash its signature fiesta in the Old Fourth Ward Park — that’s right, we’re talking about the second annual ATL Margarita + Taco Festival. Highlighting the region’s top Mexican food and cocktails, the festival will feature 10 margarita bars and dozens of taco vendors, including Tin Lizzy’s, El Azteca, Mezcalito’s Cocina, Matador Cantina, On the Border, The Chef’s Table, and more. Taco lovers aged 21+ can order Tecate beer and specialty margaritas at each of the bars, while their little ones bop around in the kids’ zone (bouncy house included). The event will also feature a makers market featuring arts and live music. And after sampling as many tacos and margaritas as your heart desires, you are invited to vote for their top picks. Winners of “Best Taco” and “Best Margarita” will be announced at the end of the day and given trophies, and bragging rights to boot.

Free. 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sat., May 19-Sun., May 20. Old Fourth Ward Park, 680 Dallas St. www.foodoramaevents.com/tacofestival.

Get your bibs out and your wing-holdin’ stance ready because the Slingin’ Wings Festival is back and better than ever. For one day only, restaurants from all over the city are coming together to bring you the best wings Atlanta can cook up. Along with the steamiest of wings, festival goers can also expect a variety of brews, contests, activities, and live music performances by DJ B3, Michael Zaib, Skyballs, The Geeks Band, and Bootz & Katz. Veteran vendors include: Wing Stop, The Smoke Ring, Three Dollar Cafe, Hobnob, Taco Mac, and Wild Wing Cafe. Local ATL food trucks will be onsite in addition to wing vendors. At the end of the day attendees can vote for the best wings at the festival which will then be crowned with the people’s choice award. And you’ll be eating wings for a cause — a portion of all proceeds will go towards Releash Atlanta, a nonprofit organization that works to rescue dogs from high-kill shelters throughout the state.

$14-$35. Noon-8 p.m. Sat., May 12. Brookhaven Park, 2660 Osborne Road. www.slinginwingsfestival.com.

A pinch and a punch for the first of the month! Hosted by the folks at Park Pride, Pints for Parks supports the expansion of Park Pride’s Park Visioning Program, a venture that aims to provide communities with the tools and resources needed to make their park dreams a reality. Pints for Parks provides the opportunity for for green space lovers to come together and bond over a brew (or two!) after a hard day at work. So, come out to try specially designed dishes from Kitchen Six Oak Grove, KR SteakBar, Richards’ Southern Fried, Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours, The White Bull, and White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails to pair with Orpheus Brewing’s classics — all for a cause. Guests will also look forward to a brewery tour, games, a view of Piedmont Park, and the company of fellow park and beer enthusiasts.

$45. 6-9 p.m. Tues., May 1. Orpheus Brewing, 1440 Dutch Valley Place N.E. 404-546-6855. www.parkpride.org/what-we-do/pints-for-parks.

Celebrating its 47th anniversary, the Inman Park Festival & Tour of Homes has something for everybody—three stages of live music, kids activities, a tour of homes, a street parade, an artist's’ market, and more. The Tour of Homes is a self-guided tour of Victorian homes plus the newer remodeling jobs completed in Inman Park. The Arts & Crafts Market is a jury-selected group of more than 150 mixed media artists with mediums ranging from sculpture to photography. Want a real world market feel? The Street Market will feature more than 250 vendors, peddling anything from antiques to food. And if you’re looking for a little Atlanta altruism, stop by the Community Corner booths to find out about several non-profits across the state. Are you starting to get the idea that you can find anything and everything at this festival? Good, me too.

Of course the most important feature of any weekend, let alone a festival, is food—and this festival’s got plenty. From pizza to BBQ to gyro, local food vendors will be stationed throughout, and neighborhood restaurants are ready for business, too. The festival takes pride in ATL’s thriving performing arts community with the Inman Park Dance Festival, which features the Atlanta Ballet Centre Theatre, Ballethnic, Emory University Movement Studies Program, and more. Last but not least, Sandra Hall and the Shadows, Javon Womack, Squirrelheads, and Mia Green will perform live shows.

Free-$25. 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Sat., April 28. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Sun., April 29. Inman Park. www.inmanparkfestival.org.

Tour of Homes runs on Saturday and Sunday from Noon-6 p.m.
