WHO:                   The Fox Theatre
                                The celebration is a thank you to Atlanta for supporting the Save the Fox campaign in 1974-1975 and an opportunity to share the icon with a new generation of fans. In 1974, the future of the legendary Fox Theatre was uncertain. Citizens rallied to “Save the Fox” and raised $1.85 million to restore the beloved Atlanta landmark, resulting in the Fox’s triumphant return in 1975 as an opulent performance venue.

WHEN:                 Sunday, June 7
12:00 – 6:00 p.m.

WHERE:               The Fox Theatre
                               660 Peachtree St NE
                               Atlanta, GA 30308

In Midtown at the intersection of Peachtree Street NE and Ponce de Leon Avenue, an area that historically represents the heart of Atlanta. Both streets at the intersection will be closed to vehicle traffic; the main entrance will be at Peachtree Street NE and 3rd Street NE.
