In July 2019, in Bilbao, the Fair Saturday Foundation announced its U.S. expansion with Atlanta being one of the first U.S. cities to participate in Fair Saturday 2019, taking place on Saturday, November 30 – the Saturday after Black Friday.
During this year’s event, artists and cultural organizations from all over the world will come together in a global festival to support a social cause of their choice through art and cultural presentations. Through these collaborations, the Fair Saturday movement will raise awareness of the impact that culture has on society.
Sixteen Atlanta-based arts and cultural organizations will participate in this year’s celebration. Representatives from Actor’s Express, Alliance Theatre, Center for Puppetry Arts, Horizon Theatre, Theatrical Outfit, and Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company joined Mayor Bottoms’ Chief of Staff, Carmen Chubb, and Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs’ Executive Director, Camille Russell Love, for the City’s kick-off event.
