This event will feature 185 fine artists and artisans along the tree lined Park Drive, turning Chastain Park into a living gallery for the weekend. Entering its fifth year the Buckhead Spring Arts and Craft show enters with a strong reputation and a stronger then ever buying crowd. Visitors will enjoy fine art and crafts, a children's area and local food and beverage concessions including the "gourmet" food trucks. Local acoustic musicians will enliven the atmosphere in addition to a special VIP Tent.
This event is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces and volunteer artists. Best of all, it's entirely free to attend! The award-winning, two-day festival will be held in Atlanta’s beautiful Chastain Park featuring two days of art and activities sure to delight Mom and the entire family.
Our Goal… Located in the affluent neighborhood of North Buckhead and Chastain park, home many celebrities and top tier executives, Chastain park is the largest public park in Fulton County, with that we set out with many different goals in mind:
- Give back to the community through art
- Create a venue that emphasizes local and Georgian artists so they have a show they can depend on in their own back yard
- Bring a festival to the folks in the northern part of Fulton county
- Create a festival for Artists by Artists, letting the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival
- Create a show unlike any other in the City of Atlanta, bringing together outstanding local, regional and national artists.
The Chastain Park area is rich with one of the largest and most enthusiastic art buying communities in the Atlanta area. More than 40,000 visitors are expected over the weekend to view the many painters, photographers, sculptors, leather and metal craft persons, glass blowers, jewelers and more! The Festival will also offer visitors the opportunity to view artist demonstrations, enjoy live entertainment, participate in hands-on art activities, and enjoy festival foods and beverages. The festival benefits a scholarship fund for local artists administered by the Georgia Foundation for Public Spaces.
