Entertainment & The Arts
Something For Everyone
Peachtree City and the surrounding areas have a plethora of emerging and enduring cultural groups. From poetry readings to foreign films, look no further than the Peachtree City Library. The Library hosts monthly book clubs, a thriving poetry group, and an international film group. If you are looking for some of the best rising artwork in the area, the library also houses several collections of art throughout the year.
If performing arts are more your style, Peachtree City is home to several local theater troupes, dance groups, music performances of all kinds, and more. If you've never been to the Frederick Brown, Jr. Amphitheater (also known as The Fred), you'll be in for a treat. The over 2,000-seat outdoor venue hosts a variety of headliner entertainers from the worlds of pop music, rock 'n roll, Motown, country, and Las Vegas-style entertainment. How many places do you know that can say, Wayne Newton, Ray Charles, Styx, the Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Charlie Daniels, Hall and Oates, the Beach Boys, and Debbie Reynolds (just to name a few) all played here?
If you are looking for a night out on the town, it's a quick taxi or limousine ride to the world-famous Fox Theatre, the High Museum of Art, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, the Alliance Theater, and all the excitement of Atlanta! A little closer to home in nearby Newnan, Fairburn, and Tyrone, smaller theaters are also blooming.
As the City does not have a complete listing of all local productions, we recommend checking the local newspapers and bulletin boards at area shopping centers for a complete schedule of arts and entertainment events in the area.
