Named as one of the TOP 100 Events by Sunshine Artist (ranking 67), the Chastain Park Arts Festival has become one of the premier Fine Arts Festivals in the South East. This event is distinguished from the Chastain Spring Arts & Crafts Festival by the exclusion of craftwork.
This North Buckhead area is considered to be one of the wealthiest zip codes in north GA, and home to one of the largest and most enthusiastic art buying communities in the Metro Atlanta area. Rain or shine, visitors from all over the country enjoy this event.
The 9th annual Chastain Park Arts Festival is a two-day fine arts outdoor festival, located in the largest public park in Fulton County, featuring approximately 175 painters, photographers, sculptors, metalwork, glass artists, jewelers and more! The Festival will also offer artist demonstrations, live acoustic music, a fantastic children’s play, plus festival foods and beverages with some healthy alternatives. We’re often told we have the best “festival foods” around!
The 2017 Chastain Park Arts Festival is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, LLC and a board of experts in various artistic disciplines. The festival will uphold the highest standards supporting the arts, and offer participating artists the environment to nurture appreciation for their skills.
