Atlanta has four distinct seasons and a temperate climate, meaning event-planning professionals have the flexibility to host both indoor and outdoor Atlanta events. Winter evenings are somewhat cold with temperatures that drop below freezing, but the daytime weather is mild enough to enjoy outdoor activities, with only an occasional snowfall in December and January. High temperatures and humidity are common in the summer months, so spring and autumn are the best times to visit the city.
