Labor Day weekend locals will flock to the 27th annual Art in the Park festival in historic Marietta Square. Welcoming more than 175 artists featuring fine works of arts and crafts, Art in the Park offers creative outdoor fun for the entire family. Favorite features introduced last year like the chalk exhibition will return, and visitors will also enjoy children’s activities, outdoor dining and walking tours.
Art in the Park takes place Labor Day weekend August 31 - September 2, 2013. This outdoor event boasts plenty of enjoyment for all ages with a large Artist Market, the Children’s Art Alley, the famous Painted Pots, historic sites and nearby dining.
A new event introduced last year, the ChalkFest benefits the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art. On Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., visitors can see professional chalk artists in action. Working outside in large spaces of about 10 sq. ft., these talented artists will create mind-boggling images. It’s ok to bring the whole family to Art in the Park – at the Citrus Magic Pet Rest Station, dogs can enjoy a drink of water while owners check out the full line of products including Citrus Magic Pet products … the natural solution for your pet care needs.
Since 2007, Art in the Park has been honored as a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event. The festival is ranked 81st in the nation in the Classic and Contemporary Craft Shows by Sunshine Artist Magazine and has also earned awards from the Southeast Festivals and Events Association and the International Festivals & Events Association.
