  • JapanFest
    Samurai sword fights, flavorful bento boxes, and bone-shaking taiko drumming. Once a year since 1981, JapanFest has brought food, art, culture, and airline peanuts from the Land of the Rising Sun to the American South. Organized by JapanFest, Inc. and supported by the Japanese Chamber of Commerce of Georgia (JCCG) and the Japan-America Society of Georgia (JASG), the celebration features attractions that range from the high-adrenaline—swordplay and archery demos—to the serene, such as workshops on Japanese etiquette and the mystique of sake. Between martial arts and sushi-making lessons, visitors can head to the food court for old-fashioned udon, yakitori, takoyaki, and curry rice.

  • Georgia Renaissance Festival
    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.

  • Urban Mediamakers Film Festival
    Helmed by the not-for-profit Urban Mediamakers Association, the three-day Urban Mediamakers Film Festival showcases independent features, shorts, documentaries, cartoons, and music videos from a wide swath of burgeoning artists. In addition to having their creations screened and judged, novice filmmakers can learn the ins and outs of modern media by participating in in-depth discussions and presentations led by guest speakers who have found success in the industry. Past presentations and workshops have covered topics such as turning independent books into films, building a brand through social media, and developing a compelling story that can invoke thought and positive change. Beyond the premiers and presentations, the film festival also hosts an awards party and Videopalooza, a showcase for youth films.

  • Plaster Zone
    A menagerie of more than 500 pigment-free plaster pieces such as butterflies, animal figurines, tiny princesses, and popular cartoon characters awaits eager artists of all ages at Plaster Zone. Colorful paints and lustrous glazes enliven each objet d’art, whose decoration process may take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours depending on the size, detail, and any ongoing space-time entanglements. Unlike clay or ceramics, plaster does not need to be fired, and participants get to take their creations home immediately. The studio hosts birthday parties in addition to its open painting hours that cater to 10-fold groups of children with cupcakes, juice, and their choice of plaster to paint, with shiny veneers of glaze and glitter available for a finish brighter than a Mensa-certified disco ball.
