Located just 30 minutes north of Atlanta, Peachtree Corners, Gwinnett County’s newest municipality, is known for its relationship to technology and innovation. This summer, you can make it a point to get to know Peachtree Corners as a music destination, too! On select Saturday nights beginning in May, enjoy live music for free with concerts beginning at 7 p.m. on the town green at Peachtree Corners Town Center!
There are a few details to note as you plan your attendance. While attendees are welcome to set up their own viewing areas on concert days beginning at 8 a.m., the city will not be responsible for unattended items. There are no tarps or blankets allowed, and expect staff to move your belongings if they’re blocking event equipment or walkways. Bring your own food or buy from one of the great Town Center restaurants nearby.
And here’s what you need to know about parking: It’s free on-street in Town Center or within the Town Center Parking Deck. You can find additional space off Davinci Court, located off of Peachtree Corners Circle. (Plug the following into your GPS: 5051 Peachtree Corners Circle, 3720 Davinci Ct. or 3715 Davinci Ct.) If you choose to utilize spaces in the Davinci Court area, you’ll access the concert venue by walking across Peachtree Corners Circle and then following a string-lit mulch path to the Town Green. Law enforcement will be on-site helping concert attendees across. Need a visual? Check out this Parking Map (PDF).
