South Fulton Celebrating Fifth Anniversary with Family Day, Video Premiere, Panel Discussion
(City of South Fulton, GA – April 12, 2022) – The City of South Fulton is about to turn 5 years old and plans to celebrate with events for the family and highlighting key players in the city’s founding.
Incorporated on May 1, 2017, the city has grown to a population of more than 107,000, making it Georgia’s eighth-largest city. More than 94 percent of residents hold at least a high school diploma, 66 percent own their homes and the average household income is about $66,000, making the city one of the best-educated and most affluent in the south metro Atlanta area.
“We’ve come a long way in five years,” says Mayor khalid, a founding member of South Fulton’s city council. “With cityhood, we’ve already improved delivery of municipal services, lowered crime and insurance rates and raised home values. And we’re just getting started.”
The city will kick off Celebrating South Fulton: A City on the Rise with a special event starting at 7 p.m. at the Southwest Arts Center on Thursday, April 28. The evening will feature the debut of a new video highlighting the drive to create South Fulton. It will feature people who played key roles in that process. After the video, some of those individuals will take part in a panel discussion about the city’s founding.
Seating for the event is limited and registration is required through this link: https://cosf5thanniversary-thursday.eventbrite.com.
The event will also be live-streamed on the city's YouTube and Facebook channels.
On Saturday, April 30, the city will host a FREE family fun day starting at noon at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater. The day will feature games, carnival rides, an arts festival, a car show, food trucks, and other activities. There will be deejays and live music all afternoon, with a special smooth jazz concert planned for the evening.
