The Candler Park Music Festival returns this weekend for two days (Sept. 10-11), featuring a full lineup of live music, craft beers, food trucks, an artist market, and good times in the park.

The festival kicks off Friday, and is one of the city’s largest public gatherings to move forward so far this year, despite concerns about the surge of COVID-19 cases sweeping across Georgia. Attendees are required to present a vaccination card or proof of a negative COVID-19 test to gain entry to the festival.
