Although we are approaching the winter months, that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning some summer activities. A great activity that starts off the summer before the blistering heat in Atlanta is the Virginia Highlands Summerfest. Like most Atlanta festivals, there are local artists, vendors, and musicians playing, along with a variety of trucks and tents serving food. The festival is located at the heart of Virginia Highlands, making it a great venue to visit for a festival as you have both the festival activities and the local community activities. We visited this past summer and had a lovely time roaming up and down the rows of artists and then sitting on the lawn and enjoying the music and treats. For those looking for a fun kick-off to summer, the Virginia Highlands Summerfest is a great place to start!
