This weekend marks the second annual Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival produced by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces. The two-day free, pet-friendly event was held at the Historic Fourth Ward Park that is conveniently located along the bustling Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail. Named “Best New Event” by the Southeast Festivals and Events Association, festival goers explore fabulous works of art from more than 200 artists and artisans while enjoying live music in the amphitheater, local food vendors, drinks, a children’s area, hands-on art demonstrations, games, and much more!

In addition to 200 local and regional artists and artisans, including photographers Rob Simmons and Chris Mason and painters Whitney Summerford and Kristin Thorson, and a new Binder’s Emerging Artist Pavilion, this year’s festival will feature live acoustic performers throughout the weekend.
