The festival will stretch from Oakdale Road to Briarcliff Road and will feature over 150 artists with a focus on metro Atlanta and Georgia artists. The festival will also feature live entertainment, children’s activities and food and beverages from some of Atlanta’s favorite food trucks and vendors. This year’s festival will feature the Nun Dash benefitting the CURE Childhood Cancer which is a quarter mile dash and an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest number of people gathered together dressed as nuns!
