Atlanta’s Signature Weekend

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

If you’re in Atlanta this weekend, you won’t be able to complain that there’s nothing to do.  Somewhat strange bedfellows, but that’s what makes the weekend so unique.  Labor Day weekend has evolved into Atlanta’s Signature Weekend- a sampling of the happenings, below:

AJC Decatur Book Festival– Book lovers rejoice!

Atlanta Black Gay Pride Weekend– The world’s largest black pride celebration

Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game– College football’s kickoff event is also a great chance to see die-hard fans mingle with the Dragon*Con (see below) crowd.

Dragon*Con– the country’s largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film.

NASCAR– A whole weekend of racin’ at the Atlanta Motor Speedway (not to mention a live show by Skynyrd).

The World Famous Drive Invasion– Drive-In Movies, Rock ‘n Roll and a Classic Car Show
