About the Festival
Please join us for the 5th annual Piedmont Park Arts Festival located in Atlanta's largest park, Piedmont Park. 1215 Piedmont Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30309. 

The 2014 Piedmont Park Summer Arts & Crafts Festival is a 2-day outdoor event with an emphasis on the visual arts and family fun presented by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, for people of all ages, races, customs and interests. The midtown community of Piedmont Park is considered to be home to one of the largest and most enthusiastic art buying communities in metro Atlanta. The Piedmont Park Summer Arts and craft festival is bringing back the tradition to Atlanta's arts community.

Located in one of the most respected public parks in the City of Atlanta, we set out with these goals in mind: 1) Give back to the community through art; 2) Bring the tradition of the Piedmont Park Arts festival to the midtown community; 3) Create a festival for Artists by Artists, encouraging the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival; 4) Create a show unlike any other in the City of Atlanta, bringing together outstanding artists from all over the country plus many from right here in Georgia.

This event will feature up to 250 painters, photographers, sculptors, leather and metalwork, glass blowers, jewelers and crafters! The Festival will also offer artist demonstrations, live acoustic music, a Street Market, children's play area plus festival foods and beverages with healthy alternatives.  

The 2014 Piedmont Park Summer Arts Festival is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, LLC , who also sponsor the fall fine arts Chastain Park Arts Festival and the Buckhead Spring Arts and Crafts Festival, along with a board of experts in various artistic disciplines. The festival will uphold the highest standards supporting the arts, and offer participating artists the environment to nurture appreciation for their skills.

This event will benefit a local charity or scholarship which supports the arts to be selected by the jury. With the help of our contributors and sponsors, the Piedmont Park Summer Arts & Crafts Festival will become a successful annual tradition in our community. This event, hosted by AFFPS, is organized by artists for artists.

Admission is free - we look forward to seeing you at the festival!
