Most would agree you can’t consider yourself a true Georgian until you’ve spent time at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. With jogging paths, dog parks, a farmers market, and basketball courts, this 189-acre park is the crown jewel of Atlanta. It should come as no surprise that this gorgeous park is the venue of some many exciting events each month.
April 2018 Calendar
For your convenience, the park’s website contains a monthly calendar with all the events built in. For April 2018, a highlight of the events you can look forward to include:
- Pick up and Pitch in for Piedmont Park, which takes place on every Tuesday and Thursday.
- The Green Market on every Saturday.
- Free Yoga on the Promenade on Monday, April 23.
The Green Market
The Green Market is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. most Saturdays. It was voted as one of the top five farmers markets in all of Atlanta. This market offers you direct access to small businesses as well as local farmers to help the community thrive. Whether you want to shop or just have a look around, you’ll always have a good time at the Green Market.
Atlanta Dogwood Festival
The annual Dogwood Festival takes place from April 13–15 this year. First held nearly a century ago, this festival is crowned as the “great dame” of festivals in Atlanta. In celebration of spring and dogwoods, the festival includes an artist market, a 5K run, live music, and more food than you can possibly imagine consuming. The Dogwood Festival makes good on its promise to offer a little something for everyone to enjoy each year.
