It’s less than one month until the annual Sandy Springs Festival! Now in its 26th year, the Festival has grown from a small picnic to a major event drawing over 20,000 attendees and was voted “Best Festival” on Access Atlanta’s “Best of the Big A.” The Sandy Springs Festival is the primary fundraiser for Heritage Sandy Springs, a non-profit organization dedicated to building community through preserving and promoting the historic and cultural identity of Sandy Springs. Features of the Festival include the Doug Kessler Lightning 5K/10K race, a juried Artist’s Market, Business and Civic Expo, a Children’s Park, Collector’s Car Show, Kiwanis Pet Parade, Heritage Crafters, Live Entertainment, Food Court, Whole Foods Heritage Homegrown Market, Saint Joseph’s Hospital Health & Wellness Area, and more.
