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.

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. This festival will be held September 9-12, 2021.
More than 250 artists and crafters display their works for your appreciation and purchase. You’ll find handmade pottery, painting, jewelry, crafts and woodwork, among others. 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.
