The 2013 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 for local artists in 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 festival stands out as Atlanta’s Summer Arts Festival, with a long history of success and community involvement, this event was recreated by the Atlanta Foundation several years ago and is in located in the heart of midtown Atlanta. Drawing crowds from nearly 7 million residents in the Atlanta Metro community, Piedmont park is located in a hip urban dining and entertainment district.
Featuring works in all mediums from artist from across the county. This event is quickly become the most attend event of the summer. The show features artists and craftspeople in fine art, fine craft, photography and jewelry. The event includes music and food courts and an area for children to experience the festival’s creative atmosphere.
