2016 old fourth ward arts festival

The 2016 Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival is back at the Historic Fourth Ward Park. The festival in Old Fourth Ward is a two-day celebration of community and tradition presented by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, for people of all ages, races, customs and interests. The Festival is a major celebration of the arts while honoring the rich history of our community.

The 2016 Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival will be held on June 25 – 26, 2016. Hours are:

  • Saturday 10AM – 6PM
  • Sunday 11AM – 5PM

They are excited to bring another vibrant component to the newly completed Historic Fourth Ward Park: ART!

At this festival, there is something for everyone: fine arts and crafts, a children’s play area, local food and beverage concessions, live acoustic entertainment on the lawn.  All this within the environment of Atlanta’s most lovely park, part of the celebration on the Atlanta Beltline redevelopment.  Formerly, this area flanked “City Hall East,” which is now known as Ponce City Market.  This area is targeted as one of the prime examples of urban redevelopment and innovation, benefiting the surrounding communities.

The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces was founded by artists, for artists; by the community, for the community.  We respect the environment to showcase artists in public and hope you will, too!

The Historic Fourth Ward Park area is rich with diversity and one of the most enthusiastic art communities in the Atlanta area. This event will feature up to 150 fine painters, photographers, sculptors, leather and metal craft persons, glass blowers, jewelers plus an Emerging Artist pavilion! The Festival will also offer visitors the opportunity to view artist demonstrations, enjoy live entertainment, participate in hands-on art activities, and enjoy festival foods and beverages.

The Festival benefits a scholarship fund for local artists administered by the Georgia Foundation for Public Spaces.
