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.
Here are some of the events Emory Point produced last year.
The holiday season is always festive, and a special someone made his debut at Emory Point. We’re talking about our very own #EPStylishSanta! We had fun finding him in different stores at Emory Point. Guests also got into the holiday spirit with pet pictures in the park, a Big Green Egg giveaway and more.
We followed up our Earth Day Recyclers Day with another earth-friendly event — this one in partnership with the Clifton Corridor, Emory University’s Sustainability Initiatives, and the CDC to support America Recycles Day!
America Recycles Day at Emory Point happened on Tuesday, November 15th, and was a great way for folks to clear their clutter by recycling it. This included the secure shredding of personal and sensitive documents.
And for edutainment, participants in America Recycles Day at Emory Point made their way through The MAZE Project — a recycling-themed interactive art installation created and built by an amazing team of Georgia State University art students. If you didn’t have a chance to stop by, check out the pics on their Instagram page and our blog post about the Spring 2017 Recyclers Day at Emory Point, as well as the video on our Facebook page.
Sun salutations and downward dogs were all over Emory Point Park when empower yoga hosted Yoga in the Park — a series of free yoga classes that took place on Saturday mornings in October to celebrate in advance empower yoga’s opening at Emory Point in December 2016.
You ate, drank, and made a world of difference in the community at our hugely successful inaugural Grillin’ & Chillin’ this past summer.
Then you did it again in September and October during the second Grillin’ & Chillin’ series, Emory Point’s signature community foodie fundraising events. Thanks to the top Atlanta-area chefs and mixologists, event sponsors, and attendees, we raised thousands of dollars to support the efforts of the Decatur Education Foundation and Les Dames d’ Escoffier.
Emory Point and Gables Emory Point partnered for an Oktoberfest-Halloween celebration this year.
In addition to enjoying tasty food and drinks and great giveaways from Emory Point restaurants and retailers, attendees of all ages played Cornhole and carved their own spook-tacular Halloween jack-o-lanterns with pumpkins courtesy of Earth Fare!

Top Atlanta mixologist Jerry Slater hosted a series of intimate, informal cocktail classes in June and July at the Lounge at Emory Point. Attendees sipped delicious cocktails and munched on light snacks while they learned techniques, history, and a little cocktail etiquette from Jerry.
Jerry covered a different topic in each class, including “Classic Cocktails for the Summer” (Classic Daiquiri, Bramble, and Mint Julep), “Wet Hot American Whiskey” (featuring two quintessential American whiskey cocktails, the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned, made with classic Kentucky bourbon and new single malts of Seattle), and the “New Orleans Master Class,” during which Jerry led participants through the making of three New Orleans-defining classic cocktails: the Sazerac, Vieux Carré, and Ramos Gin Fizz.
In June Emory Point hosted our inaugural SaturDates film night, the first in the series of free outdoor movie screenings that was held in the Park at Emory Point. The force was with everyone who came by for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Jazz lovers grooved to the sounds of the Nick Longo Trio, the Mar-Tans, the Joe Gransden Quartet, and Joe Gransden during Emory Point’s May Jazz series of free, live jazz concerts on Saturday evenings in the Emory Point.
