ARTS AND CULTURE IN ATLANTA: ON WITH THE SHOWS! BY LIESL MERKEL

Who’s ready for live entertainment again? The fall season ushers in cultural experiences in countless forms and the city couldn’t be happier to introduce you to all they have to offer. Atlanta’s creative artists will introduce many performing and visual arts events that show off their artistic genius. Plus, look for neighborhood arts and music festivals happening every weekend. ELEVATE Atlanta Art Festival will span two months and take place on the weekends in different neighborhoods across Atlanta. Happening Sept. 5-Oct. 31, ELEVATE’s theme of REOPEN, REIGNITE & RECONNECT mirrors the festival’s mission of reconnecting communities with Atlanta’s diverse array of arts and culture.

we emerge from a global “ Aspandemic, people are eager to

share experiences and celebrate. During this year’s ELEVATE Atlanta Art Festival our mission is to assist and amplify the efforts of the cultural community and local businesses as they safely REOPEN, REIGNITE & RECONNECT. We continue our commitment to highlight the outstanding work of local artists, and this year we are broadening the festival’s scope. Join us beginning Labor Day Weekend with the return of the Atlanta Jazz Festival, and every weekend through October in neighborhoods across Atlanta to enjoy music, art, dance, film and a few surprises.

— Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs

For two months, ELEVATE will highlight myriad partnerships with performance venues, art galleries, museums,theaters, restaurants, bars, shops, colleges, parks and libraries, and you’re invited to the party. This multicultural festival’s events happen each weekend during Sept. 5-Oct. 31. Atlanta’s neighborhoods each have a different personality, and eight communities will be highlighted during the nine-week period. ELEVATE will activate arts and culture in a different neighborhood each week, ensuring that guests will experience something new. From Buckhead to Downtown, Westside, Eastside and Midtown, ELEVATE’s cultural offerings have a special brand of local feel. For visitors coming to Atlanta for only one weekend, they can plan their itinerary around one community and experience all of the events offered.

For local residents or visitors staying longer, they can head to a different neighborhood each weekend and get a full cultural experience at each. Many events will be family-friendly, designed to introduce arts and culture to all ages, and some events will take place in city parks. Nighttime events span from cultural performances to live music, screenings and much more. Several other partnerships will come to fruition including a reading program at libraries, performances in neighborhood parks and visual arts events. Restaurants will play a part in ELEVATE Atlanta Art Festival with discounts and specials to highlight unique dining destinations in each neighborhood. Guests can grab a bite to eat before delving into ELEVATE’s weekend offerings or sit down at a dining spot afterward to have a conversation about the latest performance.

Georgia es conocido por el cambio de colores de la vegetación durante el otoño. Una matriz de colores en los árboles nos muestran en cámara lenta el cambio de estaciones del año. Atlanta y sus alrededores ofrecen varias oportunidades de apreciar el bello paisaje. A pesar de ser una ciudad cosmopolita, Atlanta es mejor conocida como “la ciudad en el bosque.” Los colores en el ambiente te inspirarán a pasar tiempo al aire libre y buscando los mejores lugares para relajarte en familia y tomar las mejores fotografías. El Atlanta BeltLine es el lugar perfecto. Con chocolate caliente o helado en mano, comienza el recorrido hacia Piedmont Park desde Krog Street Market. Durante el recorrido también podrás visitar Ponce City Market donde encontrarás puentes que te ofrecerán la vista perfecta con una brisa refrescante de otoño. Prepara tu cámara también para los coloridos murales que reflejan

la variedad de culturas y talentos en la ciudad. Al llegar a Piedmont Park, dirígete hacia las canchas deportivas donde seguramente encontraras locales ejercitandose. No te sorprendas si se te hace algo conocido, ya que suele ser el set perfecto para varias películas. Y es que la vista a la ciudad es perfecta desde aquí y bellamente decorada por los árboles. Es la combinación ideal entre el horizonte de los edificios, y el colorido vibrante de la vegetación. El otoño en Atlanta también da paso a celebraciones culturales, tales como El Día de Muertos. Para tal ocasión, el Atlanta History Center se pone de manteles largos con un festival colorido. El festival incorpora altares, comida, música, cuentos y entretenimiento que representan la cultura y las tradiciones Mexicanas haciendo homenaje a aquellos que ya no están con nosotros. Para continuar la celebración del Día de Muertos, una visita al cementerio más

Descubre lo que Atlanta tiene que ofrecer, más allá de lo que nuestros ojos pueden ver. Estas opciones te darán la oportunidad de disfrutar de las diversas culturas, la vibrante vegetación y la rica historia de Atlanta durante el otoño.

LGBTQ+ TRAVELER’S GUIDE TO ATLANTA

Atlanta has been referred to as the “Gay Capital of the South.” Building on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s teachings of acceptance and tolerance, Georgia’s capital is full of diversity. Since 2013, Atlanta has one of the highest LGBTQ+ populations per capita in the country at 12.8%, ranking third of all major cities. Atlanta has received perfect scores on the Human Rights Campaign’s Equality Index recognizing its commitment to LGBTQ+ equality in its policies across the board. Such acceptance and commitment have led to Atlanta becoming a popular and vibrant vacation spot for gay travelers. BY JOLEEN PETE

Atlanta Pride Festival

Plan your trip around Atlanta’s Pride Festival and Parade, one of the oldest and biggest in the nation, which draws thousands of visitors to celebrate and is generally held mid-October. October weather in the South is some of the best, and Atlanta Pride follows a week of LGBTQ+ events such as art shows, dance parties, parades and more.

Midtown holds “the crossroads of gay Atlanta” at the intersection of 10th and Piedmont designated by the iconic (and Instagram-worthy) Rainbow crosswalk. Midtown is

also home to Piedmont Park, which hosts some of the city’s most popular festivals including the Atlanta Pride Festival, Music Midtown and Atlanta Dogwood Festival.

Stay Locally

Stay near the action at the Midtown Marriott Suites or LGBTQ-owned BCA Furnished Apartments. Or go a bit more upscale at these top (gay) rated hotels: Hotel Midtown, Loews Atlanta Hotel or Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta.

Shopping and Nightlife

The area around Ansley Mall and Cheshire Bridge Road - the “ultimate gayborhood” - are located in Midtown and are the spots for LGBTQ+ nightlife. Ansley Square shopping complex offers gay bars and shops. Grab dinner at Lazy Llama, Roxx Tavern or La Hacienda and afterward don’t miss The Heretic, party at Mixx Atlanta or the drag show at Midtown Moon. Queer women won’t want to miss the historic lesbian bar, My Sister’s Room, which offers a variety of weekly events including karaoke and Drag Brunch. While these neighborhoods offer up the heart of gay Atlanta, East Atlanta and Little Five Points are also part of Atlanta’s fabulous gay scene.

Atlanta CityPASS

Looking to catch some of the more popular sites of Atlanta? Pick yourself up an Atlanta CityPASS and tick off top attractions like World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium and National Center for Civil and Human Rights, which are across the street from Centennial Olympic Park. Stop here for a snack and watch the iconic fountain to catch your breath before heading off to visit Fernbank Museum of Natural History or Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame.

National Center for Civil and Human Rights

Walk the BeltLine

Prefer to spend your time outdoors? Grab breakfast at 8ARM, adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine and then take a walk (or rent bicycles) to enjoy nature, admire public art and look for Tiny Doors ATL. Stop in at Ponce City Market, a shopping center and dining hall with a hip vibe and plenty to explore including drinks, brews and great food options. Don’t miss the King of Pops boozy popsicles.

Atlanta Falcons

The winds of change are blowing in with this 2021 season for the Falcons. New general manager Terry Fontenot and incoming head coach Arthur Smith have already put their fingerprints on this new era after they drafted Florida tight end Kyle Pitts with the fourth overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Even though there’s plenty of change, Matt Ryan will still be at quarterback for the 14th-straight season. There will be four opportunities to take in the top-rated and fan-friendly game experience at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, including a Thursday night prime time game on Nov. 18 against the New England Patriots. www.atlantafalcons.com

Georgia Tech will be back in football action this fall at historic Bobby Dodd Stadium in the heart of Atlanta. Tech and its three preseason All-ACC players will play its first ACC game of the season just a few miles down the road at MercedesBenz Stadium on Sept. 25 against the North Carolina Tar Heels. It’s the first game of the Mayhem at MBS series, which is a six-year partnership between Georgia Tech football and MercedesBenz Stadium.

The Panthers will open up at home Sept. 4 against the Army Black Knights, which will take place at GSU’s home venue of Center Parc Stadium. Watching football at a former baseball park is one of the most unique sporting events that you can experience in Atlanta and is also relatively cheap. www.georgiastatesports.com/sports/ football

Atlanta Hawks

Hot off the heels of making its deepest and most exciting playoff run in franchise history, the Atlanta Hawks will be right back in action this fall as the NBA returns to its usual schedule. With head coach Nate McMillan drawing up the plays, Trae Young, Cam Reddish and De’Andre Hunter will surely have State Farm Arena rocking once the season gets under way on Oct. 19. If the intense hoops action

doesn’t hook you, the No. 1 ranked Overall Game Experience in the NBA that comes with taking in a basketball game at State Farm Arena should be enough reason to make going to a Hawks game a must. www.nba.com/hawks

Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game

Atlanta is the capital of college football and the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game is one of the many reasons why this is true. In the first of the two Kickoff Games, No. 2 Alabama will take on No. 25 Miami for the first game on Sept. 4. Then on Sept. 6, Louisville will clash with No. 18 Ole Miss. Both games will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and a game ticket will grant you access to the Tailgate Town presented by PNC on each game day at the nearby International Plaza. The Chick fil-A College Football Hall of Fame is also only a short walk away from the stadium, so there’s an opportunity to walk through college football history at the Hall while witnessing history in the making at the Kickoff Games. www.chick-fil-akickoffgame.com FALL 2021
