The Phoenix Flies features free city-wide events

Posted by Mary Margaret Stewart March 1, 2017

The 14th annual “The Phoenix Flies: A Citywide Celebration of Living Landmarks” returns March 4. 

The event runs through March 26.

The Phoenix Flies Celebration is “an upcoming city-wide event,” and this month-long festival offers an abundance of free events for locals to enjoy.

It’s run by the Atlanta Preservation Center (APC), which is “focused on the preservation of Atlanta’s architecturally, historically, and culturally-significant buildings, landscapes, and neighborhoods.”

Events involve “guided walking and bike tours, lectures, storytelling, and open houses.”

According to APC, the Phoenix Flies Celebration is its largest educational event for the year. As stated in one of their recent press releases, a few events to look forward to include:

– A peek at the successful conversion/adaptive reuse of the Kirkwood Library

– Explorations of the Arts through new event partners, which have historically contributed so much to Atlanta’s culture, such as the Atlanta Ballet, the Atlanta Opera, and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA-GA)

– A tour of the Georgia Governor’s Mansion, celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year.

Here is the full programming guide:
