Decatur ARTS Live
Decatur’s Performing Arts Festival, Especially for Families!
Saturday, August 27
9:45 am – 3 pm

Improv comedy, African dance, storytellers, jugglers, string quartets and MORE, all under one roof! Decatur ARTS Live is a full-day performing arts festival that will feature over 30 performers on four stages, hands-on crafts, and artist workshops. The doors open at 9:45 am; everyone who enters by 10:15 am is entered into an exclusive raffle drawing for a birthday party for 20 at Leapin’ Lizards, so come early to win. We will also have exciting raffle drawings for several high-value gift baskets.

The event is appropriate for K-5th grade students, and the entire greater-Decatur community is invited. This is the second year hosting Decatur ARTS Live at the 4/5 Academy, but this year it will all take place inside the brand new 4/5 Academy at Fifth Avenue (FAVE), giving guests an opportunity to check out the brand new school if they haven’t seen it yet.

Decatur ARTS Live is a partnership with FAVE and Young Audiences Woodruff Arts Center, the leading provider of top quality, arts-in-education programming for schools and youth organizations all over Atlanta. Decatur is lucky to have dozens of Young Audiences’ professional artists at one time visit the brand new 4/5 Academy for this incredible festival.

This is The Academy at Fifth Avenue PTO’s major fundraiser for the year. Money raised by the PTO goes to support cultural arts programs and academic enrichment at FAVE. Advance sale tickets are discounted to $10 for adults, $5 for children, or $20 per family, and they may be purchased online at On the day of the event, tickets will be $15 for adults, $8 for children and $25 per family. There will be family-friendly food available for purchase in the school cafeteria.

Get a look at the NEW 4/5 Academy at Fifth Avenue, and bring the arts to your family, too!
