Don’t miss these green Atlanta festivals: Fall Fest 3 with Trees Atlanta and Fall in the 4th with the Fourth Ward

Festival season is still going strong here and Atlanta has two great green festivals coming up this September 26th, 2009! The first is Fall in the 4th, a celebration of the Historic Fourth Ward Park breaking ground in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood behind City Hall East. Take a photo, because that big cracked and dusty parking lot next to the Masquerade on North Avenue is about to be transformed into a lush, grassy park featuring a stormwater retention pond, skate park, the BeltLine trail and transit, and more! So come on out and support this Fall in the 4th fundraiser for the Historic Fourth Ward Park! And, if you’re going anyway, why not stop by and volunteer for a shift at the Atlanta BeltLine booth? We’re looking for a few good volunteers to help tell our neighbors about the BeltLine project which will go right through Historic Fourth Ward Park!

  • What: Fall in the 4th with live music, food & drinks, an artists’ market, and more!
  • Where: by the Masquerade off of North Avenue and North Angier
  • When: September 26th, 2009 from 12 – 7 p.m.
  • Why: to raise money for the Historic Fourth Ward Park Conservancy

The Druid Hills Environmental Club is throwing the second party, which is their 3rd annual fundraiser for Trees Atlanta. Below is an announcement from Matthew Tyler of the Druid Hills Environmental Club:

I just wanted to let everyone know that there will be a benefit concert for Trees Atlanta, Fall Fest, on Saturday, September 26th at the Trees Atlanta headquarters! There will be a lot of great local bands food from Raging Burrito, and presentations from several organizations like Green Peace, the Georgia Conservancy, and WonderRoot. All ages are welcome (we are trying to get as much age diversity as possible this year), the music is family-friendly and there will be a lot of fun things to do for everyone. This is our third year and we are expecting 250+ people this year!

Here is the facebook page! Be sure to become a fan and be on the lookout for the event invitation and share it with everyone you know!
