After being cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, the Marietta Art in the Park festival is taking place Saturday-Monday at Glover Park on the Square as the event marks its 35th anniversary.
Admission is free, and so is nearby street parking. A chalk street art display for kids on Saturday (from 10-3) costs $10 per person, and paid parking lots near the square will be available.
There will be artwork from more than 175 fine artists, and nearby shops and restaurants will be open. Hours are 10-5 Saturday-Monday, and here’s more from the festival organzers:
“In the spacious Artist Market, attendees this year will be delighted by the range of artists new to the festival who offer a high level of fine art in media including jewelry made from fine metals and precious stones; ceramics; paintings in watercolor, acrylic, oil and pastel; woodworking; glass; photography; textiles and much more. Of course, everyone’s favorite artists from past years will be back too! In fact, the 175 artists showcasing one-of-a-kind works and commissions represent the best of the best at Cobb County’s only annual fine art show. The affordable original artwork is offered in a variety of price ranges and styles.
“Since 2007, Art in the Park has been honored as a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event, ranked in the Top 100 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.
“Proceeds will benefit the Marietta High School Art Club.”
