Last year’s inaugural Festival on Ponce was such a success that the organizers have created spring and fall versions to accommodate interested artists and vendors. The spring festival dates this weekend, April 14-15, (fall dates are Sept. 15-16 if you want to mark your calendar) and will once again take place in the Olmstead Linear Park along Ponce de Leon Avenue. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Visitors will enjoy fine art and crafts from 100 local and regional artisans, a children’s area and local food and beverage. There will also be live acoustic music from Julie Gribble,  Jordan Grassi, W.L. Bishop, Nikki Talley, Dwight Raby and more. Atlanta’s favorite food trucks will be back in the park, too, so come hungry. Trucks expected this year are Yumbii, Rolling Reuben’s, The Fry Guy, Tastee Truck, S&J PIzza, Harry the Hot Dog Guy, McKinley’s BBQ, Moosehead Kettle Corn, Granny’s Old Fashioned Lemonade, The Crazy Nut Lady, Bruster’s Ice Cream, Crisp Watermelon Drink, Kona Ice and King of Pops.

Make sure to “Like” the festival’s Facebook page for updates throughout the weekend.

  1. Thank for posting this! I went to the festival on Sunday and got a chance to hear W.L. Bishop, but didn’t know what his name was! He was great, so keep up the good and informative articles!
