Things to do in Atlanta September 18th - 21st

Looking for things to do in Atlanta this weekend? Consider this your go-to guide for wining, dining and celebrating your way through one of the greatest cities in the south. There is a chill in the air, but the weekends are hot... with excitement! It's fall which officially means the end of summer and the unofficial start of fairs and festivals. We know we can expect to have at least one per weekend, and this weekend kicks them all off. Try some adult-friendly activities with your friends at New Belgium, or bring the kiddos to either Roswell or Sand Springs for some family fun. Today marks six-months to St. Patricks Day, so for those of you who want to start your weekend a little early, I cannot think of a better way to do so.

Have a wonderful weekend! Thursday, September 18 10th Annual Taste of Buckhead . The 10th Annual Taste of Buckhead is a food and wine experience!
