Spring Ponce officially kicks off the festival season here in Atlanta, which is quickly being recognized as the Arts Capital of the South. Partnered with the Southeast Tourism Society and several local arts groups, Spring Ponce is nestled amongst the top tier of Decatur and Midtown Atlanta’s affluent neighborhood of North Druid Hills. The area’s inhabitants are highly professional, enthusiastic art buyers and supports of the Arts.
This event will showcase a limited number of Artists of juried 125 artists and crafters to increase the participants’ opportunity for success. The festival is organized and run by artist and artist(s) volunteers who understand the needs and challenges of artists and how best to connect with consumers during this difficult economy. With the support of 5 neighborhood associations this event has quickly marked its position, as a main stay- must do event in the greater Atlanta Decatur community.
Over the years, the Olmsted Linear Park has remained one of Atlanta’s most visible parks. To recapture the grandeur of this beautiful and historic park, concerned citizens launched a grassroots effort more than a decade ago and the results demonstrate their success and commitment.
In addition to the many artists and artwork the festival will include an amazing line up of food trucks, live music, children’s activities, as well as free parking and free admission.
