The Atlanta Black Theatre Festival is a diverse line-up of artists drawn from around the globe to around the corner. The Festival of “40 plays in 4 days” is hardly enough time to preserve and share the stories of the African diaspora.
In just six short years the ABTF has presented over 200 live events while providing opportunities for over 1,300 of the most prolific literary, visual and performing artists of our time. This annual event pays tribute to the most colorful tales of triumph and tragedy with salient humor and humanity.
Whether you’re a fan of Tyler Perry, August Wilson or just a lover of world class Black Art, the amazing shows and international vendors’ market will make this popular fall festival one of your favorite things to do in Atlanta!
So don’t just pick a play, pick a DAY (or all 4) and immerse yourself in a marathon of bold, exciting theatre. Get your individual tickets or flash and go access passes now and ENJOY!
