Event Summary

The Marietta StreetFest held each September is an annual tradition and fundraiser for the Marietta Museum of History. The festival is a Top 20 Event selected by Southeast Tourism Society and draws an estimated 21,000 people to the Marietta Square each year.

The beautiful park square is closed for traffic while patrons browse the arts and craft booths, stroll down auto alley during the Hubcaps and History Cruise-In and enjoy the many free activities in the Kid's Korner. This family friendly event has become an ideal place to showcase arts and crafts during a perfect weather time of year. Saturday evening transitions to listening to local entertainment during the Marietta Grassroots Music Festival. 

The Festival location provides additional opportunities for guests to take in the rich history of Marietta and tour any one of four registered historic districts, visit museums, or shop the unique stores and boutiques. The local restaurants cater to all tastes and styles; in or outdoor café seating is available. Complete your day by stopping by the Marietta Museum of History – admission is free all weekend.
