STOCKBRIDGE – Bridgefest, one of the city of Stockbridge’s most popular events, will be held on Sept. 27-28.

According to the city, the event is regarded as one of the premier art and entertainment festivals south of Atlanta.

The festival begins Friday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. with a free gospel concert titled “Praise on the Lawn.” The concert, which will take place on the front lawn of Stockbridge City Hall, is intended for the entire family.

The next day, Bridgefest will run from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. with live music, food, a variety of vendors and, according to a release from the city of Stockbridge, more activities than in previous years.

Activities for the Saturday portion of Bridgefest include a free youth talent show, a health fair, a car show and a kids fun zone.

According to the city, the main stage will feature popular musical acts that will be expected to draw thousands of visitors.

Attendees of all ages are encouraged to visit Bridgefest next month, an event that city officials state is intended to “highlight the unique charm of the city of Stockbridge, considered by many to be the gateway to Henry County.”
