On June 13, Atlanta’s vibrant Midtown Mile is hosting Summer Stroll on the Mile, a family-friendly neighborhood event. The event focuses on the music, sights, food and shops lining Peachtree Street from North Avenue to 15th Street.

“Summer Stroll on the Mile” will feature a neighborhood market and seasonal cooking demonstration at the 999 Peachtree plaza presented by its Community Supported Agriculture partner, TaylOrganics, and award-winning Chef Hugh Acheson of Empire State South. There will also be food tastings, brewery tours, cupcake making and other tasty offerings at various Midtown restaurants.

For children, the event highlights Colony Square’s kids’ village which includes a bounce house, face painting and live music. Wandering magicians and storytelling areas are nestled within the Midtown Mile providing interactive children’s entertainment. Along with sidewalk sales in boutiques and shops, an arts and crafts and a community mural project also lines the Midtown Mile. At the 15th Street plaza, live music and local sidewalk artists will be performing throughout the afternoon. Prospective urban dwellers can join the condominium open houses while getting a taste of the area through sanctuary tours, open houses, organ concerts and carnival activities at nearby churches.

  3. Randall, it should be working now. It links to a Facebook page, which sometimes leads to an error message. Let us know if you still can’t see it and we’ll try to find another link.

  5. I wish I had heard about this beforehand! I took my dog out for a walk and saw everything going on. Its a great idea, I wish I could have experienced the entire thing. Atlanta needs stuff like this. Everyone is afraid to walk on the street and get out of their cars. Hopefully this will not be the last time an event like this happens!
