Mark your calendars for October 28, as the inaugural Benteen Park Fall Fest promises a dynamic celebration of community, creativity, and culinary delights. Residents and visitors alike are invited to immerse themselves in a vibrant and diverse festival experience, set against the picturesque backdrop of Benteen Park. This year’s event showcases Atlanta-area artists, local food vendors, live entertainment, and a dedicated kids’ area for family-friendly fun.
Festival hours are 11:00am to 6:00pm. The event brings together a rich tapestry of creativity and community engagement. The Harvest Market, a centerpiece of the festival, features a curated selection of works by Southeastern artists aimed to attract art enthusiasts and plenty of #shoplocal opportunities for the holiday season. From incredible local makers to small business owners, the Market embraces a mix of established and emerging artists, and so much more.
In addition to the vibrant art and local business market, festival-goers will enjoy a feast for the senses with a delectable array of food vendors. From savory to sweet, the culinary offerings promise to satisfy every palate and enhance the festival experience.
Live entertainment takes center stage, with neighborhood bands providing the perfect soundtrack to the festivities. From toe-tapping tunes to soulful melodies, the music promises a vibrant and diverse lineup to set the mood and create an unforgettable community vibe.
The festival is family-friendly, with a dedicated kids’ area for our youngest attendees. Let the little ones explore and play in a safe and interactive kid’s zone while their adults enjoy the festivities.
As part of the festive spirit, both kids and adults are encouraged to don their favorite Halloween costumes for a chance to win fantastic prizes as part of our lively costume contest. Let your imagination run wild and join us in celebrating the season in style!
