A Labor Day Weekend tradition!

Admission is FREE.

The events take place in and around Glover Park.

In addition to the artist booths, you’ll find many family-friendly activities, as well as food and entertainment.

The Artist Market

Art in the Park is a fun and interactive way to experience a wide variety of artists working in many media.

This year, the festival will feature more than 150 artists with offerings in watercolor, acrylic, oil, pastel, pottery, woodworking, glass, photography, textiles, and jewelry in fine metals and precious stones.

At the Artist Market, you can purchase art and learn about it in person with the artists. Some will even offer demonstrations for a real behind-the-scenes look at the artistic process.

All items on display and for sale must be hand-crafted by the artist and categorized as a “fine art.” This is Cobb County’s only fine art show.
You can find a list of participating artists here.

 

Chalk Spot

Visit this charming street chalk art display!
Or, if you’d like to participate, you can create a original design in a three foot-square space. Chalk is provided. The art will remain on display throughout the festival — as long as it doesn’t rain!

In past years, it has cost $10 to receive your chalk and a square to draw in. We’ll update for 2022 when more info is available — or you can watch the Chalk Spot web page for updates.

 

Children’s Art Area

This area features FREE kids art activities, for those who don’t want to pay for street chalking. The Interactive Art Area is located next to the Strand Theatre on Cherokee Street. There will also be a number of activities such as face painting and sand art that will require a small fee. Hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

 

Food

There are many restaurants on the Marietta Square that will be serving both indoors and on the patio.

 

Entertainment

Visit the Glover Park gazebo for live acoustic music. Performances are free.
