Everything Fun You Can Do in Atlanta This Weekend

National Eggs Benedict Day and more.

We’ve officially hit the third weekend of April, and although there aren’t any major holidays taking place over the next few days, there are still plenty of worthwhile events and activities to build a solid weekend around. From virtual DIY water marbling classes to live in-person music events, here is everything fun that you can do in Atlanta this weekend.

Support Atlanta’s Black Community

Friday, April 16 - Sunday, April 18
Locations vary
While the trial of Derek Chauvin—the police officer who infamously killed George Floyd last year by kneeling on his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds—continues, another police shooting took place this past weekend that resulted in the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. With another Black person slain at the hands of the police, the Black community across the country is understandably in pain at the moment, so check out our guide to supporting Atlanta’s Black Community for tangible ways to offer support and show your solidarity.
