Pretty much any weekend of the year, in some metro neighborhood or civic center, there’s a celebration going on of something: yellow daisies, Japanese culture, fishing boats. Below you’ll find some of the biggest and best events. To find out what’s happening this week, check out www.accessatlanta.com.
Inman Park Festival – Annually in April. Not your average neighborhood block party, this weekend celebration includes a home tour, a dance festival, an antiques market and a parade, in addition to the usual crafts booths and entertainment. Free. 770-242-4895.
Annually in June. The festival closes off 42 acres of Midtown Atlanta for a three-day “We Are the World” of music – more than 100 acts of all genres. The 2005 lineup included Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The White Stripes, Black Eyed Peas, The Pixies and, for the first time, a country music stage. $75 for the entire weekend.
