2018 Sponsors

We are proud to announce that Ethic is back this year as a sponsor for the 2018 LocalMotion Arts Festival and they are bringing on board with them The ATL Guide. We love our fellow Southside businesses and couldn’t be happier with this news.

Interested in also becoming a sponsor? We’ll be happy to discuss how you can get exposure for your company on the Southside of Atlanta. Reach out to us at info@localmotionfest.com.

Final Festival Layout

Good evening everyone… As our stage is getting tested out at the Downtown Live event that is going on right now, we finalized the festival map during the sound checks. It was a mad scramble to maneuver a few modified and new additions but in the end, we’re pretty stoked. See you all tomorrow 11am – 10PM – Downtown Hapeville

Public Parking

Scope out the maps below for available public parking, identified by a “P”. All public streets are fair game unless otherwise noted. The parking lots attached to the businesses listed below are also available. Parking for vendors, performers, and volunteers are labeled separately. See ya’ll tomorrow!




Free Shuttle Service

A quick and easy way to get to the festival, ride MARTA to either the East Point or College Park MARTA Station and we’ll pick you up for free! Shuttles will run to and from the festival in Hapeville and both MARTA stations from 12:00pm – 10:30pm. East Point and College Park residents feel free to hitch a ride, too! Look for the shuttles with the LocalMotion signs and hop on. The shuttles will drop off at Christ Church in Hapeville, on the corner of S. Central and Dogwood. Two shuttles will rotate between the MARTA stations and the festival, which is only a 2 mile span.

Take MARTA, it’s SMARTA!

Sunday Night Football Bus

The Sunday Night Football Bus is traveling the country this football season, visiting the host cities of all SNF games. This weekend, it will be in town for the Atlanta Falcons vs Green Bay Packers game…and it’s making a stop at the LocalMotion Arts Festival! Come get a glimpse of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, sit behind the Football Night in America desk, or take photos with life-sized replicas of your favorite players. Art + beer + food + music + dance + football = EVERYONE can have a good time!

Frosty Beverage Lineup

Yes, this is a visual and performing arts festival and yes we have a great lineup of both. And yes, the event has also turned into a little brewery tour of the south as well. We think the two are not inclusive and honestly, both go well together. We are proud of all the hard work that Beer Girl put into this programming and with having our very own Arches Brewing a part of it, this addition only makes sense.

To help keep our area’s within the festival straight, the board has unofficially started using Beer Village and Beer Island to reference our two thirst quenching locations. (until we think of something better, or I’m told I was wrong) Beer Island will be inside the park and will be featured exclusively by our premier sponsor Monday Night Brewing. We are excited to have them on board, pouring seven different styles. This featured inside location will be alongside artist, all of our food and more importantly by the band! Don’t forget about Bumpin’ the Mango! and all our other great performances throughout the day. Beer Village will be outside the park in our Artist Walk Experience. This little courtyard will feature Monday Night, Arches, Reformation, Orpheus & Burial.

Around the park



NOTE – PLEASE TAKE A SECOND TO REVIEW  – It is in our best interest for all of our beer to be gone by nights end, but it is also in our best interest that you get home safely. Please be responsible. If you need assistance wth a cab or other car service our volunteer staff is ready, willing and able to help. Be smart, arrive alive.

Burial Beer Co.


The breweries participating in the LocalMotion Arts Fest are all from right here in the South, including Burial Beer Co. Located in scenic Asheville, North Carolina, Burial was recently awarded the number one spot in Paste Magazine’s “Blind Saison Tasting” for their Mixed Culture Saison. The folks at Burial describe themselves as “Asheville creativity in a fancy jar” and we couldn’t agree more! From their carefully crafted beer to the imaginative labels on their bottles and cans, Burial’s creativity will fit right in at the LocalMotion Arts Fest! They are only distributed in NC, GA, & NY, so we feel incredibly lucky to have them on the Georgia beer scene and at our festival.

Come taste for yourself on September 16th and make sure you give Burial a visit the next time you’re in Asheville.

Arches Brewing


Recently awarded a gold medal for their Mystik Bock from the U.S. Open Beer Championship, Arches Brewing is making a name for themselves, and for the Southside. Located in the arts district of our host city Hapeville, Arches Brewing focuses on old-world style beers, achieved through combining American craft and traditional brewing techniques. The head brew master is a biochemist, who uses science to manipulate the neutral City of Atlanta water. With over 38 tried-and-true recipes, including three year-round styles and a variety of seasonal lagers, there is something for everyone.

This summer the brewery upgraded to a 20-barrel, gas-fired brewing system. The first batch of Arches beer in cans should be on the market soon. Meanwhile, make sure you try out their brews at the LocalMotion Arts Fest on September 16th! And after the festival, come back to visit the brewery’s stunning tap room and family friendly beer garden.

Visit their website for more information about tap room hours and other upcoming events.

Main Beer Sponsor – Monday Night Brewing

LocalMotion Arts Fest is proud to have Monday Night Brewing as the main brewery sponsor for our upcoming event! They are a multi-award-winning brewery located in West Midtown with an additional location, Monday Night Garage, opening in the West End, a neighbor to the Tri-Cities, the weekend following the festival.

Although they claim “weekends are overrated”, brewing beers for the weeknights, we think enjoying one of their delicious ales on the weekend of the LocalMotion Arts Festival is a perfect exception! A fun and whimsical take on the brewery experience, they can be serious, too. Brewing beer with intention and purpose to strengthen human relationships and to empower one another, we value their commitment to community and are honored to have them at the festival.

Starting this fall, you can find the beers you know and love donning a new and vibrant look, with all core and seasonal beers switching from bottles to cans. Come see them at the LocalMotion Arts Fest on September 16th and be sure to check out their new digs in the West End the following weekend! For more information, go here.
