This Saturday, NYCnash will be at Atlanta Maker Faire in the Make Nashville booth while a party happens in its¬†own back yard! Neighboring hoods Chestnut Hill and Wedgewood-Houston unite to put on a festival that highlights community and sustainability. It kicks off at 2:30 and runs through Arts and Music at Wedgewood-Houston, so crawl your way over Dudley Park, located on Chestnut and 3rd, right by Track One. I talked to Adrianna Silver, the executive director of WeHo’s community board SNAP. ¬†There will be live music, local art vendors, a petting zoo for the kiddies (NYnash is terrified of llamas), food trucks, a beer garden, and more! What makes this fest different from the rest is its focus on gardens and sustainability. Chestnut Hill is dotted with urban gardens, which you can tour. Riding your bike to the fest? They’ll have valet bike parking, too!
