unFestival Home

For more than a decade, Atlanta art and music lovers have flocked to Grant Park to bid adieu to summer at the Summer Shade Festival. This year we are continuing with the reimagined unFestival format, to keep everyone safe. Follow us on FacebookInstagram for alerts and all programming happening.

The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival is an annual fundraiser for the Grant Park Conservancy (GPC), a non-profit, membership-based organization committed to the restoration, renovation, beautification and maintenance of historic Grant Park.  Thank you for attending and supporting, and we hope you enjoy your final hurrah of summer from a safe social distance!

For 2021 we are making the Summer Shade unFestival a "season" long event! Supporters can expect a variety of events such as; Beer, Wine, & Bourbon Sales, T-Shirts, Raffles, Adams Realtors Run for the Park Virtual 5k, Benefit Music Nights, Cocktails for the Park at Zoo Atlanta, and Food-o-Rama Food Truck Festival with a portion of alcohol sales benefitting GPC.
