1. Atlanta Dogwood Festival
When: April 12-14
This is the ultimate springtime fête, found in Piedmont Park. For over 80 years, the Dogwood Festival has brought the community together for an outdoors fine arts market. Among the artists selling their crafts are jewelers, painters, potters, photographers and others. The market sprawls throughout the park, allowing you to enjoy the scenery. There’s also a kids village if your tots need a chance to burn some energy in that fresh springtime air.
