visit website


Atlanta’s historic built environment of buildings, landscapes and neighborhoods is an integral part of the city’s culture and economy. Phoenix Flies: A Celebration of Atlanta’s Historic Sites provides an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and strengthen Atlanta’s historic and cultural assets. The celebration was created in 2003 by the Atlanta Preservation Center as a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the dramatic rescue of the Fox Theatre, an event that changed Atlanta’s preservation perspective forever. Phoenix Flies 2021 is the 18th year that the APC has brought together organizations and individuals from the community to demonstrate the value of Atlanta’s historic built environment. The celebration has grown from 16 preservation partners and 40 events
to an average of 100 partners offering over 200 events each year.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Phoenix Flies looks a little different than previous years. The program features a little over half of our routine partners participating, with a mix of virtual and in-person events. In-person events do require masks be worn and maximum guest numbers have been reduced in order to meet recommended social distancing protocols.

The full digital program can be accessed online at or by clicking below.

Some Phoenix Flies events require pre-registration. Event registration will open on Thursday, March 4th at 10 am. at
