When you run a gay tour of Atlanta parks, one of your cornerstone festivals has to be in Midtown. Well, they do and it is. Piedmont Park Arts Festival dominated two glorious days over the weekend.

As if proximity to the future home of rainbow crosswalks and being on Pride’s home turf weren’t enough, Piedmont Park got even gayer on Saturday and Sunday. Music, art vendors and food made for a fun day, and gay men and lesbians came out in force.

The event is just the latest in a well-established annual schedule of arts fests from Randall Fox and Patrick Dennis, the gay couple behind Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces. The organization oversees a dozen park festivals in each year. Up next is the Sandy Springs Festival in September.
