It’ll be a good time for the whole family!
Gunna Fest 2022 is here to mark the celebration of the second annual Gunna Day. It was just last year that the City of South Fulton, Georgia declared Sept. 16 to be Gunna Day. It was also the same day Gunna’s Drip Closet and Goodr Grocery Store made its debut at his former school, Robert McNair Middle School. Gunna, along with Atlanta-based food recovery and distribution company, Goodr, opened a cashless grocery and clothing store at the middle school. The inspiration came from the fact that many of Fulton’s residents don’t have access to nutritious food, snacks, toiletries, shoes and clothing – which is something Gunna and Goodr say is known to have a negative impact on a child’s ability to focus on learning. With the opening of the cashless grocery and clothing store, students now have daily access to these items, free of charge, and can even take them home to their families.
This year, to celebrate Gunna Day, Gunna Fest 2022 is the place to be. The celebration will be a family-friendly festival with rides, games, food and merch for Atlanta’s Southside. Gunna’s team shared his sentiments about the festival via his Instagram page, “I said I was gonna stand on this day for the rest of my life and I meant it,” the post was captioned. “Last year September 16th was declared ‘Gunna Day’ and this year my family is building a new basketball court at a local youth shelter and I’m putting on for the Southside with the Gunna Fest.”
Gunna recently achieved a huge career milestone—his hit single with Lil Baby, “Drip Too Hard,” gained more than 10 million streams, reaching RIAA Diamond Certification. His album “DS4EVER” also reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with over 1.55 billion streams and 950,000 albums sold in the U.S. The album marks Gunna’s second No. 1 Billboard 200 debut. Gunna’s last album, “WUNNA” sold 113,000 units and took the top spot on Billboard.
