Inman Park Fest 2015, April 25-26 @ Inman Park & Surrounding Venues

Inman Park Spring Festival takes place in one of Atlanta’s oldest and most scenic neighborhoods. First developed in the late 1800′s, Inman Park is home to many historic homes and parks. The Festival began in the early 1970′s as a means to attract attention to gentrification efforts that sought to revitalize the community.

Now celebrating its 44th anniversary, the festival offers something for everybody – three stages of live music, kids activities, a tour of homes, a marvelous street parade, an artists’ market, and some of the city’s best people-watching! Come early, stay late, and be our guests at Atlanta’s best street festival.
