More than 100 artisans from across the country will display their works April 14-15 at the Seventh annual Acworth Art Fest held on historic Main Street.
The celebration of whimsical art and creativity takes place 10 a.m.-6 p.m. April 14, and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. April 15.
Thousands of people attend each year to walk among tents filled with paintings, pottery, metalwork, folk art, glass, jewelry, yard art and more.
A popular feature is the Kidz Zone. Historic Frana Brown Park, at 4901 N. Main St., and the adjoining street are transformed into a creative playland for children and their families. The area is assembled by The Art Station-Big Shanty, a facility of Cobb County Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department.
The area includes arts and crafts, face painting and inflatable rides.
Be sure to come hungry and enjoy food sold by Acworth restaurants, and traditional festival cuisine including kettle corn, shaved ice, Philly Cheesesteaks and more.
