The Piedmont Park Summer Arts & Crafts Festival is a 2-day outdoor event with an emphasis on the visual arts and family fun presented by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, for people of all ages, races, customs and interests. The festival strongly supports the efforts of the Piedmont Park Conservancy for their oversight, maintenance and expansion of the park.
We created this festival with these goals in mind: 1) Give back to the community through art; 2) Bring the tradition of the Piedmont Park Arts Festival to the midtown community; 3) Create a festival for Artists by Artists, encouraging the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival; 4) Create a show unlike any other in the City of Atlanta, bringing together outstanding artists from all over the country plus many from right here in Georgia.
This event will feature up to 250 painters, photographers, sculptors, leather and metalwork, glass blowers, jewelers and crafters! The Festival will also offer artist demonstrations, live acoustic music, an Emerging Artists Pavilion, a children’s play area, plus festival foods and beverages with healthy alternatives.
The Piedmont Park Summer Arts Festival is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, LLC , who also partner with the fall fine arts Chastain Park Arts Festival and the Buckhead Spring Arts and Crafts Festival, along with a board of experts in various artistic disciplines. The festival will uphold the highest standards supporting the arts, and offer participating artists the environment to nurture appreciation for their skills.
This event will benefit a local charity or scholarship which supports the arts to be selected by the jury. With the help of our contributors and partners, the Piedmont Park Summer Arts & Crafts Festival will become a successful annual tradition in our community. This event, hosted by AFFPS, is organized by artists for artists.
Admission is free – we look forward to seeing you at the festival!
