2nd Annual Atlanta Tibetan Festival

November 14, 2009 - 10am to 4pm

 
   
  --  
 

Come and join us for our annual Atlanta Tibetan Festival.
There will be Tibetan food, music and dance, a Tibetan market
along with guided meditation and games for the children.

 
     
     
 

Bring your family and friends to this special celebration of Tibetan culture. Activities include meditation, Tibetan food, music, dance, games, Tibetan Bazaar, film screening, door prizes, children’s arts and crafts.

Since His Holiness the Dalai Lama blessed our center in 2007, Drepung Loseling has been working towards completing its vision of creating a “Little Tibet” in Atlanta. Last year’s Grand Opening Celebration was a prelude to what will become DLM’s annual Tibetan Festival to be held each fall. Hundreds of visitors enjoyed last year’s festivities and we promise this year’s program will be just as fun.

Parking and Directions
 
     
 

There will NOT be parking available at the center but thanks to the graciousness of the Skyland United Methodist Church, we will be able to park in their lot between 8am and 8pm on Saturday, November 14th.

Please note: parking at the Skyland United Methodist Church is ONLY available to us during the 2nd Annual Atlanta Tibetan Festival event. We request that you use that parking lot as we don’t want to upset our neighbors with too many cars parked on the side streets around the center.

The Skyland United Methodist Church is located a short walk away from Drepung Loseling at:
1850 Skyland Terrace NE, Atlanta, GA 30319.

Please park at the lower level area off Skyland Drive first. Do NOT park in the handicapped parking immediately in front of the church, or in the spaces in front of the church as they also have an event on the same day.

If you or someone in your party is not able to walk from the parking lot to the center, you may either drop them off at the center and then go park.

Please google or mapquest directions if you need something more extensive than the directions below.

At the first stoplight past Drepung Loseling, turn right onto Skyland Drive NE. Go past the entrance to Skyland Park and look for the church on your left, turn left onto Skyland Terrace to access the parking lot.
