The Brookhaven Arts Festival happens this weekend, October 19th and 20th. It is FREE to attend.
The festival takes place on Apple Valley Road, right behind the Brookhaven MARTA Station. There is free parking behind MARTA as well. Better yet, you can just ride MARTA and get off right at the festival location.
Apple Valley Road will be closed between Dresden Drive and the entrance to the MARTA parking lot, to accommodate the vendor booths and festival grounds. View the map and get directions.
- Saturday, October 19th — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Sunday, October 20th — 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The main part of the festival is the artist and vendor booths. But there is also also live music, plenty of food, kids activities, and a classic car show.
