Presented each October in a culturally significant neighborhood within the City of Atlanta, the week-long festival showcases the city’s cultural offerings by providing free, quality cultural experiences that highlight the City’s cultural and economic vitality.

Each ELEVATE is presented with a specially curated “theme” that emphasizes various cultural topics and trends while incorporating the talent and creativity of local, national, and international art and artists. Hosted this year in Atlanta’s Pittsburgh community, the festival seeks to use art to bring a new perspective to the culturally significant yet overlook community.
