Enjoy the real live carnival fair before Carousel at Serenbe.
This year, Serenbe has started out their plays with a bang! Their outdoors have been transformed into a real carnival complete with games and fair food like cotton candy, plus adult beverages too.
From the Serenbe website: Carousel tells the story of Billy Bigelow and his lovely Julie Jordan highlighting the dark undertones of a cruel world juxtaposed with the enduring power of love.
Things you should know about Serenbe:
- Serenbe is about a 45 minute drive from Downtown Atlanta, and the show wasn’t over until about 11 pm. If planning on a weeknight visit, consider that you won’t be home until about midnight.
- Once you get off the interstate, there’s really no place to eat, so you can break up the drive and eat somewhere on the way (why not explore some of the lesser known gems in East Point or College Park?) or dine at Serenbe’s restaurant on site, The Hil.
- All shows take place outdoors, rain or shine. It was a bit cool the evening I visited Serenbe for Carousel, so you may want to pack a light jacket in case.
- Parking at Serenbe is free and on the adjacent lawn to where the show takes place. However, it is outdoors, so ladies, leave your heels at home.
- There’s an Inn and restaurant on site. So, you can eat at the restaurant before a show at Serenbe and even stay the night if you book in advance. Often times, Serenbe will have special discounted rates on stays during the nights of shows.
