Old Fourth Ward Fall Fest

Come Join the Fun!

The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership and Rival Entertainment are teaming up once again to present Old Fourth Ward Fall Fest — the fifth annual free, one-day festival that embraces the spirit and culture of the Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade, created by and featuring Chantelle Rytter and the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons, which debuted in 2010 and drew more than 70,000 participants last year.

The Old Fourth Ward Fall Fest features live local music, a DIY lantern making area, food trucks, local artists/vendors and more. The festival’s prime location along the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail makes it the ideal place to view the Lantern Parade. Bring a blanket or chair and enjoy excellent views of the parade's glowing procession of color, light and sound. Kids and pets are welcome to join in the fun at Old Fourth Ward Fall Fest.

Learn more about Old Fourth Ward Fall Fest here.

New for this year, we welcome the first Atlanta Rose Festival which will be held on the festival grounds at Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark from 12:00 – 4:00 pm. Enjoy complimentary wine and craft beer tastings (over 75 varieties), music performances, and fun wine-themed activities. Tickets are $40 and include a souvenir rosé festival tasting glass, complimentary wine and craft beer tastings, a DJ and live music performances. Food will be available for purchase. Atlanta Rose Festival tickets can be purchased here.
