The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces is proud to announce the Fourth Annual Fall Festival on Ponce coming October 18th and 19th in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Fall Festival on Ponce is an Atlanta arts and crafts festival held in the historic Olmsted Linear Park. Visitors will enjoy the gorgeous landscape designed by one of America's most celebrated landscape architects, Fredrick Olmsted Sr. , which was carefully restored by the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance. An estimated 20,000 visitors will attend this event with over 125 displays of fine art and crafts, folk and "outsider art."
In addition to the abundance of unique art, there will be a children's area, local gourmet food, beverages and a small stage for acoustic musical performances. Attendance is Free.
This is the third year that AFFPS will hold an outdoor arts and crafts festival in the chain of parks on Ponce de Leon Ave in the historic Druid Hills neighborhood. This event will be very conservative, with sensitivity and consideration for the park and surrounding neighborhood.
