UPCOMING 2017 EMORY POINT EVENTS
Emory Point is hosting its annual Fall Festival on Saturday, October 28th, from 1:00-3:00 PM.
In addition to music + tasty food and drinks & great giveaways from Emory Point restaurants and retailers, kids of all ages can pick pumpkins from the Emory Point “pumpkin patch” (courtesy of Earth Fare) to paint spook-tacular Halloween jack o’lanterns (or whatever your artistic self desires)!

PREVIOUS 2017 EMORY POINT EVENTS
Mary Kay Andrews visited Emory Point as part of her book tour for The Beach House Cookbook, her latest publishing sensation.
The Emory Point Grillin’ & Chillin’ events held in 2016 were such a success that we hosted another set on May 11th, June 8th, June 29th, and July 13th!
Grillin’ & Chillin’ — Emory Point’s signature foodie fundraising series — returned with top Atlanta-area chefs and mixologists (most of whom partnered with Emory Point last year) giving their time to serve up more fabulous food and delicious drinks to raise funds for local nonprofits. Popular jazz bands added harmony and melody to the feasting fun.
Attendees ate well and drank well during Grillin’ & Chillin’, held in the Park at Emory Point. They did good works at the same time, too, because 100% of their ticket purchases were donated to local nonprofits supported by the chefs. And several attendees won their very own MiniMax Big Green Egg!

Attendees cleared their clutter at our Spring 2017 Recyclers Day at Emory Point on Thursday, April 13th, from 11:30 AM – 6:30 PM.
We had trucks next to the Park at Emory Point to collect recyclables, and people brought clothing, media, electronics, paper, household items, and more to be recycled.
This was Emory Point’s third community recycling event in a year. At the last one — America Recycles Day at Emory Point in November 2016 — attendees brought a collective…
- 8000 pounds of electronic recyclables
- 200 pairs of shoes for charitable donation
- 2 truckloads of personal documents for safe and secure shredding
- 8 truckloads of other households items for recycling
Here are some pictures from America Recycles Day. You can see more pics in our blog post about the Spring 2017 Recyclers Day at Emory Point.
