Fall Arts Festival on Ponce
“Fall Festival on Ponce” will host up to 175 (mostly) local artists and crafters September 15-16, 2012 in the chain of parks along Ponce de Leon Ave. This is second year the famed Olmsted parks will be feted with art. Visitors will appreciate the extensive renovations and maintenance accomplished by the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance (http://www.atlantaolmstedpark.org/). The parks on Ponce are just down the street from the Fernbank Museum (at Boulevard and Ponce de Leon), and designed by Frederick Olmsted, Sr. with total enjoyment in mind. What an ideal location for one of the most enjoyable art shows of the year!
What will this festival be like? Visitors will enjoy fine art and crafts, a children’s area, Street Market and local food and beverage concessions including “gourmet” food trucks. This event is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces and volunteer artists to benefit the local community including the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance and the Paideia School.
