Old Fourth Ward Park Arts Festival

While it may not get the recognition that the music and culinary scenes do, the art scene in Atlanta is definitely worth mentioning and celebrating. This weekend's Old Fourth Ward Art Festival is aiming to embrace the artistic community by holding this inaugural festival for all to enjoy.

Activities like this are what make Atlanta the perfect destination for summer! The Old Fourth Ward Park Arts Festival is a two-day celebration of community and tradition presented by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, for people of all ages, races, customs and interests. The Festival is a major celebration of the arts while honoring the rich history of our community. At this festival, there is something for everyone: fine arts and crafts, a Street Market, children's play area, local food and beverage concessions and live acoustic entertainment.

The Historic Fourth Ward Park Conservancy is also presenting this weekend festival, on June 29 th -30 th . Over 200 arts and crafts vendors from around the state and Southern region will be offering all mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, jewelry, woodwork and much more. All of this is within the environment of Atlanta's most lovely park, which is part of the celebration on the Beltline redevelopment. Formerly, this area flanked "City Hall East," which is now under redevelopment as Ponce City Market by Jamestown Properties. This area is targeted as one of the prime examples of urban redevelopment and innovation, benefiting the surrounding communities.

The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces was founded by artists, for artists; by the community, for the community. They respect the environment to showcase artists in public and hope that all Atlanta residents will. For more information, visit http://www.oldfourthwardparkartsfestival.com/ .
