We love the yellow daisies that grow around Stone Mountain in the fall. Last year we hiked Arabia Mountain to celebrate their bloom, but this year, we’ll be visiting the Stone Mountain Yellow Daisy Festival.
This festival was voted one of the top three arts & crafts shows in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine, a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event, and winner of multiple awards by the Southeast Festival and Events Association. In other words — this festival is top notch.
This year, the Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain Park will be held September 7-10, 2023. Here’s everything you need to know about this amazing arts and crafts festival.
THE YELLOW DAISY FESTIVAL
The Stone Mountain Yellow Daisy Festival began as a small crafts show in 1968 — but has now grown into the big event it is today. Even with all that growth though, it still maintains a small town feel.
More than 350 artists and crafters display their works for your appreciation and purchase. In 2023, you’ll find 100 new artists! You’ll find handmade pottery, painting, jewelry, crafts and woodwork, among others. You’ll also find daily live entertainment, Children’s Corner activities, and crafter demonstrations throughout the event, as well as fabulous festival foods.
This four-day event has something for everyone. The Yellow Daisy Festival will be held September 7-10, 2023. On Thursday, the hours are 8am – 6pm, and Friday-Sunday the hours are 9am – 6pm. This is a family-friendly event!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The Yellow Daisy Festival is FREE with paid parking. Vehicle entry to Stone Mountain Park is $20 for a one-day permit. You can also buy a Stone Mountain Annual Pass for $40, allowing you to attend the festival for multiple days.
