Vote for Atlanta’s best festival on Best of the Big A blog!

If you've got a favorite festival around Atlanta, whether it celebrates a vegetable or local history, time to nominate it for the Best Festival on Best of the big A. AJC file photo

Nevermind the weather forecast, here’s just one more sign that spring has arrived: the AJC’s Best of the Big A blog is asking you to pick the best festival around Atlanta. After all the festivals and fairs we’ve discussed on this blog, I know you’ve got opinions on the matter. It could be books, chili, rides, crafts, flowers, animals, music or a certain neighborhood that gets you to vote — as long as it comes in the form of a festival.

Here’s how it works: voters nominate their favorites in the Best of the Big A blog comments. One week later, we tally the top vote-getters and ask you to pick among the top 5. Finally, we’ll announce the winner one week after that.

Keep an eye out — I’ll have another big announcement involving Best of the Big A later this week, too!

Best Festival? By far, it’s the Inman Park Festival! The friendliest people, most beautiful homes, fabulous art, great April weather, creative ambience, and wonderful fun for all – from toddlers to grandparents…

Best Atlanta Festival? Hands down, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival for its wonderful artists, food, and events. It is 74 years young this year, and still as vibrant & alive as ever.
