Atlanta Arts Festival
Some 200 vendors—including artists from Atlanta and throughout the Southeast, as well as national names—will be on hand in Piedmont Park with fine arts and high-end crafts. And yes, there will be food trucks. September 13–14

Chomp and Stomp
As you might infer from the name, this Cabbagetown festival emphasizes food (a colossal chili cook-off) and music (lots of bluegrass). But don’t miss the art vendors. Although the exhibitor list is not as expansive as those of other festivals, it’s stocked with locals. November 1

Chastain Park Arts Festival
Organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, the event includes more than 180 vendors, along with a dozen or so musical performances (if last year’s lineup is any indicator, emphasis on folk acts). November 1–2
