The 2011 Piedmont Park Summer Arts & Crafts Festival is a 2-day outdoor event with an emphasis on the visual arts and family fun presented by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, for people of all ages, races, customs and interests. The midtown community of Piedmont Park is considered to be home to one of the largest and most enthusiastic art buying communities in metro Atlanta. The Piedmont Park Summer Arts and craft festival is bringing back the tradition to Atlanta arts community.
Located in one of the most respected public parks in the City of Atlanta, we set out with these goals in mind: 1) Give back to the community through art; 2) Bring the tradition of the Piedmont Park Arts festival to the midtown community; 3) Create a festival for Artists by Artists, encouraging the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival; 4) Create a show unlike any other in the City of Atlanta, bringing together outstanding artists from all over the country plus many from right here in Georgia.
