Atlanta Events

From lectures and exhibits to concerts and art, the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday (third Monday of January) and Black History Month (every February) give visitors numerous reasons to celebrate Atlanta's history, heritage and rich civil rights legacy.

Originating from a showcase of blooming trees and accomplished artists, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival has evolved into one of the largest events in the Southeast. Staged every April, you'll find the country's best painters, sculptors, photographers, jewelry makers, glass blowers, and other artists.
