Atlanta Night Market at Gwinnett Place Mall, April 21 – 23

April 21 – April 23, 2017

Cities come alive at night, especially one home to a vibrant international community such as Greater Atlanta with a population of 5.6 million people representing over 75 countries (per the Metro Atlanta Chamber). We believe it’s time Atlanta had its own night market to showcase the foods, crafts, talents, customs, and people making Atlanta’s international community one of the greatest in the world.

Inspired by vibrant outdoor markets popular throughout Europe and Asia, night markets are social outdoor events where food, retail, and educational vendors offer a variety of fresh, local street foods, arts & crafts, and other culturally-relevant and family-friendly fare.

Taste The World!

Our “Taste the World” message is one of celebrating Diversity, Inclusion, Community & Culture. The Atlanta International Night Market events are about celebrating people from every culture and every country with the goal of opening the hearts and minds of our participants to embrace the diversity of the human family. Learning about other culture’s food, performances, games, and traditions is an important way that we can help bring about real positive change in our global community.

We believe that in order to see the end of inequality in society we need to embrace what makes us different. For us, the concept of “Taste the World” envisions a world that embraces diversity, respects differences and actively rejects hatred and prejudice.

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.

Tax Tips for Gifting in 2017

It may seem silly to be speaking about contributions, donations to charity, and holiday gifting when the temperature gauges in some areas of the U.S. are still reading three digits. However, as anyone can see when they go to retrieve their mail, more and more envelopes, newsletters, magazines and promotional material is being sent out by organizations requesting donations. From the beautiful 2018 calendars being sent from places like the National Parks Conservation Association; to the lovely Christmas card samples being sent by the National Wildlife Federation, more and more mail is headed to your house from truly great organizations needing help to continue their work.

Extraordinary Emily Dickinson Biopic Available on Home Video

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) had less than a dozen of her 1,800 poems published, while she was still alive. Since she was only appreciated posthumously, it makes sense that a movie about her life might revolve around something other than the literary prowess that went unrecognized by her contemporaries.
