Come One, Come All: Celebrate Spring at Midtown ATL Events
Whether dogs, live music or family fun are your jam, we’ve got something fun for your social calendar.
We’re ready for (official) Spring, aren’t you? And whether dogs, live music or family fun are your jam, we’ve got something fun for your social calendar.
Check out Midtown’s spring event calendar below:
Acoustic Wednesdays in Commercial Row Commons
Dates: March 8, 15, 22 and 29; April 5, 12, 19 and 26; May 3, 10 and 17
Each Wednesday, Midtown Alliance will host a local musician to play an acoustic set at Commercial Row Commons, located at Peachtree Street and Peachtree Place, outside Savi Midtown.
We kicked off the series on March 1 with the dulcet tones of Keith Cuts, a singer-songwriter who lives and works in Midtown. Keith describes his sound as “Jack Johnson meets Bruno Mars, helping you to see the brighter side of things and live your best life.”
Stop by and vibe out on your way home from work, or pick up some takeout from a nearby restaurant and enjoy dinner al fresco while you’re serenaded by a local musician on any upcoming Wednesday!

Look for Midtown Alliance and partners to add more free events to the calendar this year as a part of Midtown Alliance’s Public Life Action Plan, which emphasizes activating the district’s existing public spaces to drive success in a post-pandemic future.
“Midtown Alliance is excited about launching our 2023 line-up of free public events and programming," said Ansley Whipple, project manager at Midtown Alliance. "These spring events are just the beginning —we plan to bring many more activations to the neighborhood throughout the year so stay tuned for more announcements. This is just one way we are committed to enhance Midtown’s public life, making it an even better neighborhood to be in.”
