Since 1977, The Atlanta Jazz Festival is where Atlanta’s music fans kick off the Summer at Piedmont Park. The festival show case local talent and globally famous artists. One of the fun things about the Atlanta Jazz Festival is that you can tailor your experience to fit you mood. I have done everything from intimate candle lit dinners to small picnics with friends to massive gatherings with 50 people. No matter how you set up ad enjoy the festival the music makes the day or night special.
The free festival is produced by the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. The festival includes an Artist Market, featuring arts and crafts, collectibles, vintage items, and local goods.
