In a huge English village in Fairburn, roughly 13 miles southwest of the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, this 30th annual festival teems with life, noise, and the PG-13 debauchery of nearly 1,000 costumed rakes, harlequins, ne'er-do-wells, knights, wenches, and the ever unpredictable royal treasury accountants. Catch jousting, falconry shows, and surprise inquisitions to make sure you're having a good time. Take up a sword and have a blast repressing the local Irish, or dress up your niece and nephew for a crusade to bring endless laughter and good times to frowny infidels.

Featured on Access Atlanta, JapanFest's two-day festival gives crowds of more than 17,000 people a chance to taste varied Japanese cuisine, watch live performances from Japanese musicians and artists, and practice traditional arts in hands-on exhibits. The tunes of Grammy-winning recording artist Yukiko Matsuyama, whose compositions feature the traditional stringed koto, drift through the air as festival-goers watch the hands of professional calligrapher Kotaro Hachinohe bring a large paint-sodden brush down on paper in bold strokes. Pairs of guests can practice the art of petal positioning at the Japanese flower-arranging exhibit, then carefully prune miniature trees at the bonsai demonstration, pruning branches as gingerly as generals clipping budding turrets from the potted tanks in their offices. A range of other participants fills the center's showroom, including anime collectors, kimono crafters, and sake sellers. After perusing the swarm of exhibitors, visitors can reboot with traditional Japanese fare from vendors such as Kotobuki Cafe and Sushi Niko Niko.

The Georgia State Fair is rooted in tradition. The state's celebration of all things agriculture and seasonal fun began in 1846, and since then, tens of thousands of people have flocked through its gates each year. What exactly do they find? Depending on the day or hour, a Mexican duranguense group might be getting the crowd dancing or a tribute group might be recreating Rolling Stones hits such as There Ain't No Moss on Me. Other areas of the grounds host livestock competitions?including a junior heifer show?while a step in a different direction might land you inside a maze of mirrors. That's just one of the fair's midway attractions, which include kid-friendly speed boats, a Zyklon roller coaster for thrill-seekers, and a circus train for the whole family.

Commemorating the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001, the Heroes Music Festival combines inspirational musical acts and patriotic activities to honor America's fallen and future heroes. Festival-goers can wrap their ears around an inspirational lineup of rock, pop, and country artists from around the nation's cavernous network of musician mines. On Thursday, country legend Hank Williams Jr. headlines, and Darryl Worley's contemporary country and The Grascals' award-winning instrumental bluegrass kick off the weekend. Burns & Poe play Friday, as does guitarist Jonny Lang, who rounds out the day's acts with his unique brand of gospel-tinged blues. Sunday's lineup closes the festival with performances from headliners Third Day, country-soul singer Jon Scott and Christian-rock mainstays Rapture Ruckus and 7eventh Time Down.

Hershey Theatre The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.
