If you were picking a location to stage a Shakespeare performance, you’d be hard pressed to find a better spot than Avondale Estates.

The city, founded in 1924 by patent medicine tycoon George Francis Willis, features Tudor-style architecture. The city is named after William Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon.

This Saturday, April 15, the Avondale Estates Business Association is paying tribute to that literary inspiration by holding “Shakespeare in Avondale Estates.”

The event begins at 12 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m. and will be held at the city’s historic Tudor Village, 106 N Avondale Rd, Avondale Estates, Georgia 30002.

The event announcement says, “Come enjoy food and beverages in the spring weather behind the Tudor Village, bring the kids to enjoy the bounce house and face painting, and watch free performances by The Atlanta Shakespeare Company @ 2 p.m. (kids) and 3:30 p.m. in the Avondale Towne Cinema. This is a FREE EVENT. We will see you there!”

Here is a flyer for the event:
