The new Festival on Ponce features local artists and acoustic music in a series of parks created by Fredrick Olmsted, Sr. .along Ponce de Leon Avenue. The event is held in the spring and fall and also includes a children’s area and food trucks. This event is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces and volunteer artists to benefit the local community including the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance and the Paideia School.
For easiest access, riders can board bus 2 at the North Avenue, Candler Park or Decatur Stations, which travels along Ponce de Leon Avenue and the festival. Another option is to take bus 6 from the Inman Park or Lindbergh Station and exit at Moreland and Ponce de Leon and walking about 10 minutes away from downtown on Ponce.
