Atlantans who love the area’s many festivals will have a new one to add to the social calendar this year — Midtown Festival of the Arts.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Midtown Festival of the Arts Inc. on Thursday revealed details about the new neighborhood arts festival, which will highlight Midtown Atlanta’s diverse arts and entertainment offerings.

The festival will be along Peachtree Street between 5th Street and 10th Street on Sept. 25-26. The road nicknamed the “Midtown Mile” will be temporarily transformed into an artist market with up to 100 visual artists, stages for performing arts, children’s art offerings, and a culinary arts area featuring chef demonstrations, special tastings and retail booths.

The festival also will have a family-friendly kid zone, Midtown Mile Road Race, a public art display and auction, a planned beer garden and other festival attractions such as street performers and film presentations.

Audi is the event’s presenting sponsor. The Loews Atlanta Hotel, Terrapin and The Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO) are official sponsors. The Margaret Mitchell House is the cultural alliance sponsor. Absolut, Emory Healthcare/Emory University Hospital Midtown, Fifth Group Restaurants and Herradura are platinum sponsors. Jamestown is a gold sponsor. Cousins Properties Inc. (NYSE: CUZ) and Georgia Power Co. are silver sponsors.
