It's time to plan the weekend. Whether you're looking for culture picks, family fun or live music, we've got the top weekend things to do in Atlanta.

Carol’s Picks
Carol is the ATL Insider’s culture vulture. If there is a new exhibit in town or a new show on the stage, Carol is the first to know about it.

  • 13th Annual Atlanta Arab Festival, Saturday and Sunday, April 21 and 22
    Up for something a bit exotic this weekend? Try Arabic sights, sounds -- and food. There will be belly dancing.   

  • Spring Fling at Ponce City Market, Saturday, April 21
    Bring the family during the day; leave the kids at home if you go in the evening. Celebrate spring and Earth Day, and find out how you can choose a global location and plant a tree there. 

Joleen's Picks
Joleen is a work-at-home mom to a 5-year-old son. She and her family live in the 'burbs but enjoy regularly traveling into the city for family-friendly fun and adventure.

  • Lemonade Days, through Sunday, April 22
    This fun-filled fund-raiser for the Dunwoody Preservation Trust is a family fave. It is a festival filled with booths, rides and entertainment plus contests and a 5K run. While admission is free, wristbands for unlimited rides ring up at $20 if you purchase through the link online. Get outside to Brook Run Park and have some fun.

  • 11th Annual Touch-a-Truck Family Festival, Saturday, April 21
    This family festival is sure to be a winner with kids obsessed with all things transportation. There will be more than 20 different trucks in one place for kids (and adults) to touch, climb in and explore. Think fire trucks, UPS trucks, dump trucks and more. In addition, there will be a kid zone with plenty of activities and concessions for a snack. This event is rain or shine and admission is cash only so hit the ATM on the way.

Tommy's Picks
Tommy is a young professional keeping an eye out for the city's liveliest happenings.

  • SweetWater 420 Fest 2018, all weekend
    Good music and great beer mark the annual SweetWater Brewing Company event in Centennial Olympic Park. Umphrey's McGee, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Sturgill Simpson, Vulfpeck, the String Cheese Incident and *many* more acts grace the stage.

  • P!NK, Saturday, April 21
    She's comin' up! Head to Philips Arena this Saturday to catch P!NK in the ATL while you've got the chance.
