Barefoot in the Park Fine Arts Festival (www.barefootinthepark.org) is Mother’s Day Weekend (May 9th & 10th) and will be the kick off to the all-new Art Week (May 9th-16th) where the City’s new Public Art Master Plan will be unveiled and “artsy” events will take place each day. The ever popular, Musicians Playground, will return this year on June 26th

The Summer Stage Concert Series will begin on June 20th with a Beach Party featuring Atlanta’s own, A1A, a Jimmy Buffett tribute band. On July 18th the Georgia Cup Twilight Cycling Event rolls into town and Vertical Horizon will cap off the night with some fabulous music sure to have you dancing the night away.

Last year, 100,000 people attended Duluth City events from here in Gwinnett County and the Metro Atlanta area. Hopes are to attract more as changes to Downtown Duluth makes the area a more walkable City with restaurants, shops, and performing art centers.
