From the Organizer
Visitors will enjoy fine art and crafts, children’s area, live acoustic entertainment and local food and beverage concessions including “gourmet” food trucks. This event is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces and volunteer artists to benefit the local community. This event will be very conservative, with sensitivity to the park and neighborhood. Best of all, its free to attend. “We hope that neighbors and visitors will come see the extraordinary gardens of the Olmsted Linear Park and stay to peruse the 125 local artists who will take up residence there for the weekend! We are very proud that our local artists will be able to draw attention to both the historic parks and the Druid Hills community in a positive way,” says Patrick Dennis, President of the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces. These beautiful chains of parks have lovely trees and paths and great visibility from one of Atlanta's truly historic avenues. This is a unique and wonderful opportunity for locals and visitors to appreciate the vision and legacy of one of America’s most celebrated landscape architects, Fredrick Olmsted, Sr. as well as the achievements in restoration by the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance.
