The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival in Atlanta is almost here!

2012 Grant Park Summer Shade FestivalThe 10th Annual Grant Park Summer Shade Festival is one of the largest and most-anticipated annual events in Atlanta.  Activities include an artist market featuring hundreds of artists in a variety of mediums, as well as two stages for live music.  For the little ones, there will be a Kids Zone with storytellers, puppet shows and art activities along with some great more active options including a climbing wall and a bungee jump!

General admission to the festival is free, but some of the activities require the purchase of  tickets or registration including a 5K run and Corks & Forks, a food and wine event including food sampling from local eateries, wine/craft ale tasting, food preparation demonstrations and seminars. Participating restaurants include Bhojanic, Livingston, Peasant Bistro, The Sundial and Serpas.  Tickets for Corks & Forks are $25 in advance and $30 at the event.

The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival will take place on August 25 and 26 in historic Grant Park.  For more information and to purchase Corks & Forks tickets, visit the official 2012 Grant Park Summer Shade Festival webpage.
