  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Noccalula Falls Park
    Reservations/Appointments: Optional Established: 1996 Staff Size: 50+ people Average Duration of Services: 2–4 hours Parking: Parking lot Handicap Accessible: Yes Recommended Age Group: All Ages Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Train ride Locals agree that the best was to take in Noccalula Falls Park's natural beauty with a ride on The C. P. Huntington Train. The train wends its way through park grounds, taking guests between the outdoor animal habitat—home to a lion, a lynx, and foxes, to name a few—and the deer park, home to 10-point buck named Rambo. The locomotive chugs by Pioneer Village, a collection of rough-hewn log buildings assembled in the style of early settlements. The trek concludes by the park's miniature golf course, which uses natural rock formations, waterfalls, and streams to add challenge to its 18 holes, rather than showcasing a less friendly challenge that goes through the lion's habitat.

  • The NotWedding
    A hush falls over the pews and all heads turn to see the bride step into the light as she glides down the aisle. The groom's face breaks into a huge grin, and guests can't help but smile themselves. For an instant, everyone in the room forgets that this couple is already married and that no one in the room knows who they are. But everyone agrees that the ceremony is beautiful. This is The Big Fake Wedding, a mock wedding in which on-trend wedding vendors display their talents to entice those planning their big day. Brides- and grooms-to-be are treated to an entire faux wedding, complete with ceremony, dinner, and dance reception. They spend dinner jotting down the names of the bakers who created the delectable wedding cake, the chefs who sizzled up the artfully plated meals, and the rental centers that provided the elegant table settings. Guests can also glean ideas for modern and hip decorations and wedding-planning advice, including tactful ways to tell their fiancée's father to retire his ruffled periwinkle tuxedo.
