Sweet Auburn Festival 2022

A bustling black commercial district in the pre-Civil Rights South, and MLK Jr.'s birthplace, workplace and resting place, Auburn Avenue has seen a resurgence of late. In 1984, the Rev. Hosea Williams started the SWEET AUBURN FESTIVAL hoping to help revitalize the corridor. Revelers can enjoy food, music, and the festival's county fair-like vibe along a jam-packed Auburn Avenue. The festival was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 and will be back in 2022.
