The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces and Main Street Stone Mountain will co-host a bluegrass music and arts festival in historic Stone Mountain Village on Saturday, March 31, 2012. 

 

This one day festival includes southern Bluegrass musicians on stage, street jams, Contra dancing as well as an arts & crafts show for up to 150 self-taught artists and artisans. There will also be local food and beverages and a children’s area.  The event is held on Main Street in historic Stone Mountain Village, just a 15 minute drive from Atlanta.  This event is co-hosted by AFFPS and is organized by artists for artists.

This is the best recipe for a New Southern Tradition.  Mixing bluegrass musicians and self taught southern artists and artisans is a combination worth savoring!  Up to 150 artists and artisans will brighten the historic charm of Stone Mountain Village.  A small stage will showcase group Contra dances and bluegrass music, plus bluegrass “street jams” will be featured throughout the festival.  This event will bring much needed attention to the restoration of this historic village.

I really enjoy attending this event! I've gone for several years now. and as far as I know it is the first outdoor arts festival of the year. The people are laid back, the music is awesome, and the food is great. It's laid out well and easy to walk, plus the have a great area for the kiddos to play! Well worth checking out.
