East Atlanta Village is one of those neighborhoods that up until recently had managed to stay under the radar. That’s all beginning to change. East Atlanta Village is about three miles east of downtown, thus offering easy access to work and entertainment and just one mile south of Little Five Points. Housing styles range from Craftsman to Victorian, and new construction can be seen throughout the area. Though it’s one of Atlanta’s hottest real estate markets, East Atlanta still offers some of the city best values. The area has a good variety of shopping, eateries and places to go at night. Brownwood Park is at the heart of the neighborhood and Grant Park is nearby. Every year residents celebrate with the East Atlanta Strut, which includes a parade, live music and food.
East Atlanta hosts a number of popular annual events, including:
- East Atlanta Strut – East Atlanta’s free annual one day neighborhood festival, always on the third Saturday in September featuring a parade, 5k fun run, food, live music, art, and events. All proceeds benefit local charities.
- East Atlanta Craft Beer Festival – Annual one day craft beer festival held the third weekend in May at Brownwood Park in East Atlanta, Georgia. Festival includes over 230 beers from all regions of the planet, music and food vendors.
- EAV Farmers Market – A local non-profit farmers market each Thursday evening (4 to dark) from April through December.
