So say au revoir to summer back sweat, slip into your favorite cardigan and get ready for these amazing Sandy Springs Fall events.


Sandy Springs Festival – September 22-23, 2018

Over 20,000 people come out for this magnificent celebration of all things Sandy Springs. A battle of the bands, an artist’s market, food trucks, and plenty of things for the kiddos to do are just a few of the amazing activities we have planned. And we didn’t forget everyone's favorite Sandy Springs tradition, the Pet Parade. Cute dogs in costumes are basically legal narcotics. Ingest responsibly.
