The Phoenix Flies Celebration of Atlanta’s historic sites returns in 2022 for its 19th year! If you’re unfamiliar with this amazing event, now is the time to check it out!
From March 5th through 27th, Phoenix Flies will feature 100+ FREE tours of:
- Atlanta landmarks
- Historic homes
- Old neighborhoods like Grant Park and Inman Park
- Noteworthy architecture
- Civil War sites
- Downtown and midtown business districts
- BeltLine sites
For anyone with an interest in local history, architecture, and historic figures, this 23-day preservation celebration is a dream come true. The list of tours and the venues included is just mind-boggling.
ACT FAST and register now
While the tours and events are free, many of them require a ticket. Ticket registration opens to the public on February 18, 2022.
To browse the ticketed tours and register through Eventbrite, click here and then scroll down to find the Phoenix Flies events.
If you’re browsing thru Eventbrite, don’t be discouraged if the earliest events are already sold out — just scroll down to later in March to find events that are still open. Also, if you are already closed out of a tour you’re interested in, it is very much worth it to join the waitlist. We’ve found that many people reserve tickets early, and then cancel them before the event date.
There are also FREE events that don’t require a ticket.
You can find them in this day-by-day guide to the events, but it’s in the form of a digital flipbook online — it’s nearly impossible to read on a mobile device, so you’ll need to look at at on a computer screen.
Another version of the events program is organized not chronologically, but by subject area.
You can also pick up a printed copy of the program guide at the Atlanta Preservation Center, located at 327 St Paul Ave SE in Grant Park.
We just don’t have the time or girlpower to list over 100 tours on our calendar of free events, so this post is your only notice that the event is happening and registration is open NOW.
Full confession: We registered for 7 tours and joined the waitlist for one more.
Because free is good, and history is cool.
