Events 2017

Following the year-on-year success over the past decade, Atlanta Design Festival 2017 will continue to play host to Atlanta’s yearly Design Economy Expo and renowned MA! Architecture Tours, which have been an integral part of the festival since its inception in 2007.

There will also be numerous showroom presentations, talks, films, exhibitions, installations and more. Activities will run over 10 days with unique events spanning the whole of the city, alongside satellite architecture tours taking place in Asheville, North Carolina (June 3, 2017) and Athens, GA (June 4, 2017).

Atlanta Design Festival presents newsworthy trends in cutting-edge architecture and design, modernity, sustainability, social responsibility and contemporary culture at an elevated level happening around Atlanta. It all takes place in June and is the Southeast’s highly regarded activity exclusively about promoting bold contemporary and international design.
