The Sandy Springs Festival offers two exciting days of art, live music, cultural performances, a pet parade, Chalk Walk Art Competition, 10K and 5K race, children’s programming, classic rides, gourmet and festival food options, and much more. The Sandy Springs Festival has grown from a small picnic to a major event drawing over 20,000 attendees.

As the primary fundraiser for Heritage Sandy Springs – the nonprofit organization that saved the original “sandy springs” and is dedicated to a vibrant community engaged in history, culture, and stewardship – this celebrated community tradition has something for everyone. We are thrilled to again be presenting the festival free of charge to our community, and there are many more exciting changes on the horizon, including an expanded footprint into the beautiful NEW City Springs property.
