June is almost here, which kicks off the season of summer fun in Atlanta! The dreary winter months are behind us and the sun is shining. It’s the perfect time for our beautiful city to spring to life! There are plenty of opportunities to get out and have a great time this June all over town, and it can be a little overwhelming cramming all the activities into the time you have. We’ve narrowed down a few Best Bets to help make the decision easier! Have fun at these June events in ATL.
Concerts in the Garden
Ok, this one is cheating a little bit, as it is a concert series that runs the whole summer. But it starts in June, so it counts! Head to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to see your favorite musical acts (many with multiple Grammy Awards to their names) in an intimate outdoor setting among the beautiful gardens. Some of the highlights include Melissa Etheridge, Old Crow Medicine Show, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, The Wood Brothers, Toad the Wet Sprocket, and more!
This lively 2-day fund-raiser festival is a celebration of art of all kinds! Peruse the works of dozens of local artists, enjoy live music on two stages, chow down on tasty festival food, and partake in one of the other many events over the weekend. Don’t miss the charity 5K or the circus themed costume parade too! All proceeds go toward the Virginia-Highland Civic Association to help keep this historic neighborhood beautiful.

Balloons Over Fayette
There are few things more majestic than seeing massive, colorful hot air balloons slowly rise off the earth. Balloons were the first vehicle used by humans to break the bonds of gravity and ascend into the sky, and that feeling of awe still surrounds them! At Balloons Over Fayette, experience the thrill of riding in a hot air balloon, along with inflatables, live music, food trucks, and more!
Atlanta Fringe Festival
There are a lot of misconceptions about live theater. That it’s inaccessible or boring. The Atlanta Fringe Festival out to prove those notions wrong! Catch one of two dozen performances that range from comedy to musical to juggling to burlesque. Anything goes at the Fringe Festival!
