Why You Need to Attend the Fall Festival on Ponce 2019
1. The Artwork
If you’ve ever seen a piece of artwork that made you stop in awe of its beauty, you’re already a little prepared for the Fall Festival on Ponce. There are over 125 displays throughout the venue that are sure to inspire that feeling within attendees. It doesn’t matter if you’re drawn to paintings, photographs, jewelry, or crafts — there’s a mix of them all for you to enjoy!
2. The Park
In addition to the beautiful artwork, you get to admire the natural beauty of Olmsted Linear Park. The landscape here is absolutely stunning thanks to landscape architect, Fredrick Olmsted Sr., and Olmsted Linear Park Alliance’s restoration efforts. They deliberately planned and maintained walking paths that lead you along scenic routes in the park and surrounding neighborhoods. Best of all, the park is only a 10-minute drive away from Stonehurst Place!
3. The Cuisine
The Fall Festival on Ponce can increase your appetite for admiring artwork as well as literal hunger. Feel free to refuel with gourmet food and refreshments at the park. You can grab a quick snack for your stroll or secure a shady spot as you rest and indulge in your chosen meal. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water, too, especially if you’re lucky enough to have warm, sunny weather during the festival.
4. The Nearby Attractions
If you can’t get enough of our local arts scene, check out a variety of galleries in the area. Or, visit the High Museum of Art, which features several floors of artwork spanning across time periods and civilizations. From ancient sculptures to modern paintings, this museum has it all. Just make sure you save plenty of time for the Museum of Design Atlanta, too. Guests at Stonehurst Place get free admission!
