West Ponce Music Stroll

West Ponce businesses open their patios and parking lots, transforming them into stages for a day of free live music and fun for the fourth annual West Ponce Music Stroll on September 24. Bands will play at businesses along West Ponce de Leon Avenue throughout the day. In the evening, a large stage outside The Marlay will host three bands to culminate the day. The event is free and family friendly!

The day kicks off with the second annual 5K run and dog walk hosted by Fleet Feet. There will be an artists market with local makers selling products, a creative showcase of chalk artists, and scheduled yoga and fitness classes throughout the morning hosted by Clarity Fitness.

The Music Stroll takes place 8 am to 9 pm along West Ponce de Leon Avenue. Proceeds benefit the all-ages non-profit makerspace Decatur Makers.
