Festival And Sponsorship Information
The Atlanta International Music Festival– A Window To The World– will be held
during the observance of the National Labor Day Holiday, the first weekend of
September. The three day event (Saturday, Sunday and Monday), takes place in
downtown Atlanta at the famous Woodruff Park Complex and will feature a
“Tribute To International Music Legends”. Between 30,000 and 50,000 people are
projected to attend this event.
This festival celebrates Atlanta’s unique role as the leading international city in the
Southeastern United States. This is primarily accomplished through the performance
and presentation of major multi-cultural creative artists which will include a variety of
musicians, dancers, actors, visual artists and performers. The artists will represent a
global array of creative endeavors. There is an activity at the festival for every member

Hop, R&B, Gospel, Blues, Jazz, Asia and European. The Atlanta International Music
Festival is searching for international talent and organizations in the Atlanta area to be
a part of this event.
The Atlanta International Music Festival is a unique opportunity for the public to
interact directly with and be entertained by a broad range of Atlanta’s most active
international communities. Through the presence of official dignitaries and business
representatives, the distribution of a variety of international materials, commercial
products and services, this event will spotlight and promote Atlanta’s role on the global
Host of the 1996 Summer Olympics, Atlanta is certainly the new music capital of the
world and with Hartsfield-Jackson being the number one airport in the world, Atlanta
serves as a global gateway. Because of the many artists, recording studios, producers,
managers and other music executives based in the city - the Atlanta music scene is a lot
more visible on the “world stage”. Since the city’s music travels around the world - it is
fitting and long overdue that an “Atlanta International Music Festival” be held here.
Atlanta has become the “Music Mecca of the South” for all types of music. Artists
working within a vast and supremely talented creative infrastructure garner
international recognition on a regular basis. The Atlanta International Music Festival is
a major representation of this incredibly broad and talented community.
The attendees at the Atlanta International Music Festival will cover a wide cross-section
of residents and visitors, however, the festival is viewed mainly as a family event. Most
of the attendees live in the Metro Atlanta 17 County Area, although the Festival will
draw attendees from all over the country and world.
The Atlanta International Music Festival is produced by North Georgia Events
And Festivals, LLC.
e Atlanta International Music Festival will be held in downtown Atlanta at
Woodruff Park. Woodruff Park is a group of businesses that combine
shopping and entertainment for locals and travelers alike. Located in the Five Points
neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia, Woodruff Park was first built in 1969 by a
group of Atlanta businessman who hoped to attract tourism business and attention.
The history of Woodruff Park is quite interesting and includes viaducts that
accentuate the woodruff Park part of the district. Although the viaducts were built many
years before the district was opened, the original building fronts remain in place.
Woodruff Park events include musical concerts at a number of bars and
venues. One of the most popular events is the New Year’s Eve celebration, which
features a giant foam peach dropping from a small tower followed by fireworks and
much celebration. Woodruff Park actually enjoys some rule exemptions. An
open container provision allows patrons to carry their drinks from bar to bar, and
Woodruff Park also has a later closing time than any other bars in the city. Excitement Hits
In addition to the great bars and entertaining music, the 12-acre area also has
oscillating searchlights, an outdoor staging area for performances and concerts, and an
enormous peach fountain. During the day, Woodruff Park is a hub for shoppers,
with hundreds of retail outlets, street vendors, and restaurants catering to guests
