The inaugural Peachtree Hills Festival of the Arts will make its debut on June 9-10 featuring 150 local and regional artists, acoustic music, food, kid’s area, 5K road race and more along historic Peachtree Hills Road.

Hours for the festival are Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The festival is free to attend.

“When we first explored the Peachtree Hills area with regards to its suitability for an arts festival, it was a huge surprise,” says Patrick Dennis, President of the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, which produces the popular Festival on Ponce and Chastain Park Arts Festival.  “The area is tree-lined, home to a major design center (ADAC), beautiful homes and lots of wide open space in a densely populated area in the heart of Atlanta.  I couldn’t believe this area had never been the site of an arts festival before and am so proud to pioneer this site with an arts event.”

Dennis said the community was behind the festival and expected a big turnout for this first event. For full details on the event, visit peachtreehillsfestival.com or facebook.com/PeachtreeHillsFestival.
