Inman Park Festival & Tour of Homes

The 43rd annual Inman Park Festival is set for this weekend, April 25 – 27, with more than 150 fine artists lining the tree-shaded streets of the neighborhood. The centerpiece of the festival is the annual parade – floats, bands, local nonprofits and residents – which steps off at 2 p.m. (rain or shine) along Edgewood and Euclid to Austin Avenue.

There will also be two days of live music on three stages, a Kidzone at Springvale Park, a dance festival at the Trolley Barn and food of all kinds from local restaurants.

The annual Tour of Homes will also take place that weekend, starting today. The tour features 11 homes and points of interest in the community. Homes featured this year include those with Victorian, Gothic, Craftsman-style bungalows, modern lofts and Inman Park United Methodist Church. Advance tickets are $15 at inmanparkfestival.org or $20 at the sales booth located at the intersection of Euclid Avenue and Elizabeth Street during the festival. Tour hours are noon to 4 p.m. on Friday and noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Parking for the festival will be nearly nonexistent, so visitors are strongly encouraged to take Marta to the Inman Park station, bike or walk to the festival. A free shuttle bus will be circling the area from noon to 6 p.m. – just wave your arms to flag it down. For more, visit inmanparkfestival.org.
