Atlanta June 2024 Events

Head to Atlanta for a Summer Festival Bonanza.

Average temperature low and high: 65°- 87°
In Atlanta's June, the sun doesn't just warm - it sizzles, with temperatures between a comfy 69° and a fiery 89°. But fret not, the city is a Pandora's box of chill options. Kick off with the Kushella 4 Eva Music Festival, a lineup of indie artists and games with a side of hemp advocacy. Then, lace up for the Peachtree Road Race, an epic 10k with an equally epic afterparty. Tired? Relax at the Sad Summer Festival - misleading name, yes, but a pop punk delight. Then, get your heart (and stroller) racing at the 5K Stroller Roll. Refuel at the Grand Tasting Westside with endless tastings and musical frills. Finally, cool off at the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival or uncork some culture at the Wine & Culture Fest.
