When the temperatures finally cool down in Atlanta, the fall events in East Atlanta Village take off! While Atlanta will host huge events this fall like the Atlanta Jazz Festival at Piedmont Park in September and One MusicFest at Centennial Olympic Park in October, East Atlanta Village holds its own with smaller, local events where the neighbors come out to mingle and celebrate living in one of Atlanta’s most colorful neighborhoods.
This year we have a few more in-person events for everyone to enjoy, and we can’t wait to take advantage of Atlanta’s beautiful fall weather. Here are our top East Atlanta Village events to attend this fall!
Brownwood Bike Rally | September 13-18, 2021
The 17th annual Brownwood Bike Rally celebrates a history of community engagement in East Atlanta by raising funds for the East Atlanta Kids Club. It features bike races for kids and adults, a bike safety rodeo, bike decorating, and other family-friendly festival fun. The whole community is invested in making sure neighborhood kids have access to high-quality, S.T.E.A.M.-based, extracurricular programming.
East Atlanta Strut | September 25, 2021
The exuberant East Atlanta Strut celebrates the community’s art, culture, and quirkiness! You can strut just about anything — your business, art, talent, street — or you can just watch the riotous festivities, eat and drink, dance to neighborhood bands, and have a good time. Oh, and if you’re good with a leaf blower, you can propel objects through obstacle courses for cool prizes!
Dogtoberfest | October 17, 2021
Dogtoberfest is an annual fundraiser and non-profit dedicated to promoting responsible pet ownership in East Atlanta Village, and we’re not sure who has more fun – the humans or the pups! There will be vendors, food, drinks, raffles, and of course, an awesome costume contest — for the dogs, that is.
East Atlanta Village Farmers Market | Through November
EAV Farmers Market has been providing residents with local and seasonal produce since 2006, and has been voted Best Outdoor Farmers Market in Atlanta five times in a row by Creative Loafing’s readers.
