The Sandy Springs Festival, September 28-29, is a free event. It’s two exciting days of art, music, performances, multiple districts for adults and kids, the Pet Parade, Chalk Walk Art Competition, The Sandy Springs Lighting race, The Sandy Springs Wine Festival, a Silent Auction, the opening of the newest Heritage Sandy Springs Museum exhibit, Grit, Gumption & Grace: The Women of Sandy Springs, and much more.

The Sandy Springs Festival is the primary fundraiser for Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park. Our mission is to preserve the history of Sandy Springs, and offer culture, education, and outreach to the community of Sandy Springs.

Heritage Sandy Springs offers educational programming for adults and kids, exhibits on the history of Sandy Springs in the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum, events, like the Farmers Market, Concerts by the Springs and the Sandy Springs Festival, and is the keeper of the original springs, the name sake of Sandy Springs as well as the four acres surrounding the springs.

Our mission is important to preserving the Sandy Springs culture of yesterday for generations to come, as well as moving forward into our ever-changing city of today with outreach and fun for the whole community.
