Your Complete Guide to the Amazing Stone Mountain Yellow Daisy Festival (2024)

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 56th Annual Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain Park will be held September 5-8, 2024. Here’s everything you need to know about this amazing arts and crafts 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 400 artists and crafters display their works for your appreciation and purchase. You’ll find handmade pottery, painting, jewelry, crafts and woodwork, among others.  You’ll also find daily live entertainment, a beer garden, 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 5-8, 2024. Hours for the Yellow Daisy Festival are 8am – 5pm on Thursday and Sunday, and 8am – 6pm on Friday and Saturday. This is a family-friendly event!


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.

Parking passes include access to the natural areas of Stone Mountain Park including hiking and nature trails, public picnic areas, the 363-acre lake, the children’s playground, Grist Mill, Covered Bridge and Quarry Exhibit. You can also hike to the top of Stone Mountain!

Parking passes can be bought online in advance, or at the gate.


If you’re into vintage finds and farmhouse chic, then then Vintage Village is a part of the festival you’ll love. This special curated section will be bigger and better than ever in 2024, making it a must-stop for vintage finds.
