The 38th annual Art in the Park festival will take place on Labor Day weekend, August 31st through September 2nd from 10am to 5pm at Glover Park on the Historic Marietta Square.

There’s so much to do for all ages. Here’s a rundown.

Professional Artist’s Market

The artist’s market features more than 220 professional artists from throughout the country.

Working in mediums ranging from acrylics and oils to jewelry, textiles, woodworking and more, Artist Market artists are on-site to talk with visitors, discuss their work and in some cases even offer demonstrations. Artwork is offered in a variety of price ranges and styles, and attendees also have the opportunity to commission work directly from the artists.

Chalk Art for Kids

This year’s Chalk Spot, the popular interactive street art display for children, takes place Saturday, Aug. 31 at Art in the Park. Benefiting the Marietta High School Visual Arts Program, Chalk Spot gives young creatives the chance to transform a 3-ft. square space on a closed street into their personal work of art, which remains on display throughout festival weekend (weather permitting). Participation fee is $10 – pre-registration is not required. Participants will receive a box of sidewalk chalk and two tickets to the North Georgia State Fair (while supplies last).

Children’s Area

In the Children’s Art Alley, families with young festival attendees will find activities, games and crafts for kids, many of which offer free participation. Activities like face painting and sand art require a small fee.

Food and Drink

Art in the Park attendees have plenty of options for dining at the numerous restaurants located within and around Marietta Square. Beer, wine, soft drinks and water are sold throughout the festival.

Live Music

Throughout the weekend, visitors can head to the center of the square to enjoy live music. The central gazebo will feature a variety of performances by local singer/songwriters, all of which are free to attend. Blankets and chairs are welcome!

Festival-goers can also take advantage of a self-guided walking tour of the city’s historic district to explore nearby shops, boutiques, museums and galleries.

The festival is free to attend. Visit the Art in the Park website for more info.
