Atlanta art and music lovers have flocked to Grant Park each August to bid adieu to summer at the Summer Shade Festival for more than a decade. Grant Park Summer Shade Festival 2016 offers two days of outdoor fun planned for all ages including a 5K Run for the Park, food trucks, craft beer, an entertaining Kids Zone and a music line up that just gets better every year. You won’t want to miss the Sunday morning Grant Park Farmers Market. And did you know you can ride your bike to the festival and park it for free with the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition Bike Valet?

So, bring your blanket, bring the whole family, but don’t bring any pets, and spend summer’s final weekend at the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival 2016. The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival is always held during the last weekend in August. This year’s dates are Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28, 2016 and is the festival’s 14th year!

Each year, the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival supports the work of the Grant Park Conservancy, the organization responsible for maintaining the city’s oldest park. Thank you for attending, and we hope you enjoy your final hurrah of summer!

Kids Zone

It wouldn’t be a festival without something special for our young visitors, and Grant Park Summer Shade Festival 2016 has got that covered. An extensive lineup of performers, artists, storytellers and musicians will grace the kid’s stage. Roll up your sleeves and take part in lots of craft activities. Gain some altitude if you dare to brave the spider jump.

Live Music

The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival 2016 has earned a reputation as the place to see some of the hottest up-and-coming bands as well as a plethora of local talent. With two stages keeping the tunes flowing all weekend, Summer Shade stages offer a range of genres and plenty of greenspace from which to enjoy them.

Run for the Park 5K

The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival 2016 kicks off on Saturday morning with the Adams Realtors Run for the Park 5K. Runners, walkers and strollers are welcome to participate. With awards by age group, a tot trot and a stroller race, the Adams Realtors 5K raises funds to support the Grant Park Conservancy.
