Serenbe is closing the streets for a jubilee of all-things-Spring at the 9th Annual Serenbe May Day Festival on Sunday, May 4th from 1 – 4 pm. Artisans, culinary tastings, hot-air balloon rides, local makers and food trucks are coming together to celebrate the spring season.

Serenbe May Day Festival

May Day at Serenbe is one of my favorite annual events and a great way to spend an afternoon outdoors.

For its ninth year running, the farm-to-table community, Serenbe, is transforming the community into a spring May Day celebration. 2014 partners include Southern Living, Bosch, UGA's Flavor of Georgia, Bill Kaelin, ScoutMob Shoppe and Hand-Picked. May Day guests will enjoy culinary and artisan festivities set among the breath-taking scenery of nature. Over thirty different vendors, food trucks, artists, strolling performers, music from Cicada Rhythm and hand-made and home-grown goods from all over the SE. Notable artisans and vendors include Janke Studios, Homestead, King of Pops, The Hil restaurant, Happy Belly Truck, Bamboo Juice, Olive Style and the Serenbe Playhouse.

Expand your mind and palate at a Southern Living cooking demonstration and tastings from ABC and Bamboo Juice. For those looking to get a hefty dose of Mother Nature take to the air in a hot-air balloon. And families can enjoy an expanded children's area with pony rides, bouncy slides, face painting, a dunk tank and other May Day activities. And of course, we will even have a bona fide May Pole dance and celebration. Guests come back year after year to enjoy the food trucks and Sweetwater Brewing. Food Trucks include Grazing Here, Happy Belly Truck along with Yolis Street Food, Yumbii Food Truck, King of Pops, Philly Connection, TCBY Frozen Yogurt and The Pup Truck.

All ages are welcome and admission to May Day is a $5 donation per person that supports the Serenbe Art Farm. The Art Farm is a growing artist and residency complex at Serenbe that will house and support visiting and permanent artists aligned with the Serenbe Institute, Serenbe Playhouse, Artist in Residency program and Film Society.
