candler-park-fall-fest-2016On October 1 & 2, 2016, the Candler Park Fall Fest will take place at (you guessed it) Candler Park.

It looks like a fun way to spend the weekend. There’ll be an Artists Market, Kidlandia, live music, & more. FYI–I plan to head out for the shopping alone, as Indie Craft Experience picked the vendors & it should be an awesome mix. The music looks fantastic, too; here’s the lineup:

Saturday–“It’s a Tribute”

  • 11:00 a.m.-12:40 p.m.: Linapalooza
  • 1:00 p.m.: Devo (Devomatix)
  • 2:10 p.m.: The Doors (The Dirty Doors)
  • 3:20 p.m.: The Beatles (The Buggs)
  • 4:50 p.m.: Fleetwood Mac (Rumours)
  • 6:20 p.m.: Bowie (Pinups)
  • 7:40 p.m.: The Clash (Clashinista)
  • 9:00 p.m.: Nirvana (Nameless Nameless)

Sunday–“Locals Only”

  • Noon: Youth Quake (formally Candleroo)
  • 1:30 p.m.: Ex Wives
  • 2:30 p.m.: Rock-It 88
  • 3:30 p.m.: Dejablue Grass Band
  • 4:35 p.m.: Mia Green
  • 5:30 p.m.: Francine Reed
  • 6:45 p.m.: Bumpin’ The Mango

Candler Park is located at the corner of McLendon Ave & Candler Park Dr, about a 1/2-mile east of Little 5 Points.

FYI–If you plan to go on the Candler Park Tour of Homes on Sunday, October 2, be sure to buy your tickets in advance. Tickets are $20 in advance & $25 if you purchase them at the CPNO tent during the festival.
