Chastain Park Civic Association
CPCA’s mission is to: protect the interests of the residents; strengthen relationships with our neighbors; encourage community engagement; investigate and correct civic abuses; and foster relationships with elected representatives. The mission can be summarized into 3 main focuses: Advocacy, Community, and Safety. Joining the CPCA provides access to their private Security Patrol. The CPCA typically hosts a members-only Winter Gala, a spring family picnic and a parade and festival for the 4th of July.
The Chastain Park Arts Festival will host its Ninth annual event at Chastain Park for approximately 185 artists and artisans. Guests enjoy fine art and crafts, a children’s area and local food and beverage concessions including the gourmet food trucks. Local acoustic musicians perform live. Best of all, it’s entirely free to attend! The spring arts and crafts festival is the beginning of May while the fall festival is the beginning of November.
The Cadence Bank Amphitheater is an outdoor amphitheater within Chastain Park. Opened in 1944, the venue is known as “Atlanta’s Oldest Outdoor Music Venue”.
