In and around Smyrna this February, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding activities and events. Here are some that you might want to check out.
Feb 3-Feb 11 Carmina Burana, Atlanta Ballet
“O Fortuna” is likely one of the most instantly-recognizable pieces of music in the world and the Atlanta Ballet will be giving a performance, at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, set to that piece and the rest of Carl Orff’s best-known work, Carmina Burana. You can get tickets for the performance by visiting the Cobb Travel & Tourism site. Click here to head there now!
Groundhog Day Jugglers Festival
One of the great things about Smyrna is that it’s only a short drive from Atlanta. Take a trip into the city on Feb 3rd and you can catch the Groundhog Day Jugglers Festival. If you can’t make it on the third, it runs until the 5th and takes place at 5pm each day. The event features a competition, taking place on Sunday at 2pm, so be sure to brush up on your juggling chops if you want to get in on the action. The festivities take place at the Yaarab Shrine Center Recreation Building, 400 Ponce de Leon Avenue Northeast in Atlanta.

Infant and Toddler Storytime, Every Wednesday
It’s warming up this time of year and parents very well may want to get their kids out of the house for a bit. Every Wednesday at 10:30am, 11:30am and 4:00pm, the Smyrna Public Library has Infant and Toddler Storytime events, geared to kids between 0- and 2-years of age. The library is located at 100 Village Green Circle SE. The event includes music, stories and some movement activities designed to help foster good development of gross motor skills. It’s a great way to meet other parents if you’re new to the community, too!
On Monday, February 6 and 13, from 6-7:30pm, the Smyrna Public Library—100 Village Green Circle SE—hosts a film club. The event features a PBS documentary. This is a two-parter; if you miss the first event, you can still go to the second. The documentary is followed by recommended reading that will help to give more understanding of the issues discussed in the documentary. This event is appropriate for teenagers to adults.
