UPDATED on 11/1/2020
There is no info on the Chastain Park Arts Festival, which was rescheduled for November 7th and 8th in 2020, after being postponed from its usual May run as well as a rescheduled August date.
We assume it is CANCELED, as we’ve heard the city of Atlanta is not issuing event permits.
We have not yet updated the info below this point, so check back as we confirm the details for 2020!
The festival puts a focus on local artists (from Atlanta and other parts of Georgia) and healthy food choices. It is FREE to attend, and dogs on a leash are welcome.
The art market features up to 185 artisans, working in media that includes paint, photography, metal, leather, glass, silver, jewelry, ceramics, and more. There will be live art demonstrations as well as artisanal items for sale.
- Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There will be live music, acoustic only (out of courtesy to the park’s neighbors).
