25th marietta streetfest

The 25th Marietta StreetFest returns to historic Marietta Square with arts & crafts, local musicians and plenty of free fun activities for children. The Marietta Museum of History presents Marietta StreetFest, a two-day event in downtown Marietta featuring top-notch Arts and Craft vendors, the Hubcaps and History Classic Car Cruise-In, an expanded Children’s Zone and a chance to visit the delightful neighborhood restaurants, shops and historic sites found around the Square.

Back by popular demand is the Children’s Zone with plenty of activities that include bounce houses, giant slides, make-n-take craft projects and other interactive stations and games. It’s all the fun a kid could ask for, and it’s even larger this year. Most activities are free, but some may require a fee.

This year, the 25th Marietta StreetFest is thrilled to welcome back the Marietta Grassroots Music Festival, featuring bands and singer/songwriters from throughout the metro area who will perform original music. Many bands and solo performers will create an entertaining afternoon of music of varying genres for listeners who can bring along blankets, lawn chairs and a picnic for a special afternoon and evening experience.

Marietta Grassroots provides local musicians a chance to perform in front of larger crowds to gain more exposure. It was founded in 2009 as an outreach program to provide safe, family friendly events and activities with a special focus on showcasing local talent from Marietta and the surrounding communities.

25th Marietta StreetFest visitors will also receive free admission to the Marietta Museum of History. Marietta StreetFest has been recognized as a Southeastern Tourism Society Top 20 Event!
