The happenings will include a corporate-sponsored, three-day outdooor music festival at Centennial Olympic Park, a 5K race in downtown Atlanta, youth basketball clinics and some service projects around the city.
The Dome has previously hosted Super Bowl XXVIII and XXXIV, gymnastics and basketball events for the 1996 Olympic Games, the NCAA Men's Final Four two times (2002, 2007) and the NCAA Women's Final Four in 2003.
Atlanta will once again host the Final Four in 2013, as the NCAA celebrates the 75th Anniversary of March Madness.
