Phoenix Flies: A Celebration of Atlanta’s Historic Sites lets guests learn about, celebrate, and strengthen Atlanta’s historic and cultural assets free of cost. Created in 2003, Phoenix Flies celebrates Atlanta’s history and historical buildings in unique and fun ways. There is truly something for everyone during their month-long offerings. You can find all of their amazing offerings here.

From walking tours of some of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods to cemetery tours, tours of the Fox Theatre, and historic home visits — you’ll find something offered every day from March 2 – 26, 2024.

There are over 85 city-wide Phoenix Flies events offered this year! Although all of the events are FREE, registration is required for most of them because some events are limited in capacity. Registration is open now.
