Marietta Art in the Park Featuring the Chalk Spot
There is no need to travel for Labor Day fun – a full weekend of end-of-summer enjoyment can be found at the 28th annual Art in the Park festival in historic Marietta Square. A favorite with locals and visitors alike, Art in the Park welcomes more than 175 artists showing fine arts and crafts. This outdoor event has creative fun for the entire family with features like the Children’s Art Alley sponsored by Mount Paran North, the Chalk Spot street display and a variety of dining options and walking tours.
The Chalk Spot, a street chalk art display for children in kindergarten through 12th grade, is scheduled for Saturday, August 30 during the festival. Participants will have the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind designs in three sq. ft. spaces. The art will remain on display throughout the festival (weather permitting). Art in the Park takes place all three days of Labor Day weekend. Guests flock to the historic neighborhood year after year to visit the Artist Market, enjoy the Children’s Art Alley, see the famous Painted Pots and partake of historic sites and nearby dining.
The festival is free with plenty of free parking on the street and in the Cobb County Park Decks located on Waddell St. at Lawrence St.
