Classics, collectibles, and treasures await at the Annual Marietta Streetfest that takes place on September 20, 2014 from 9am to 9pm. Formerly known as the Marietta Antique Street Festival, the Marietta Streetfest is held on the historic Marietta Square and features antiques, autos and more. The event also includes the Marietta Grassroots Festival.

The event is a fundraiser for the Marietta Museum of History and puts Georgia pride on display by featuring Georgia antique dealers, Georgia artisans, Georgia attractions, the Marietta Square Farmers Market (9am to noon), the Hubcaps and History Marietta Classic Car Show, and the Marietta Grassroots Music Festival.

For the first time, Marietta StreetFest includes the expanded Kid’s Zone complete with old time children’s games and activities like hopscotch, bubbles, a scavenger hunt and even modern day bounce houses. This new children’s area includes interactive projects and crafts too. Most activities like bounce house, giant slide, obstacle course, bubbles, cardboard mini city and Cobb County Library booth are FREE, but some may require a fee. It’s all the parent-approved fun a kid could ask for! For adults looking for their next favorite piece of jewelry, a visit to Jewelry Row will offer a wide variety of booths filled with various styles and price ranges.

During StreetFest, the City of Marietta and WellStarKennestone Regional Medical Center will present the second annual Live Well Marietta event, providing a variety of health programs and services like free biometric screenings, “Ask the Expert” booths and healthy cooking demonstrations.

    The Marietta Street Fest sounds like a wonderful and fun event for everyone! Will restaurants in Marietta be able to participate? I’m the Marketing Coordinator for Philly Connection off of Cobb Pkwy and would be interested to know. Thank you in advance for your response.

    Will the Marietta Street Fest allow food vendors? We operate a NY style hot dog cart. We would love to be able to be a part of this fun event.

    Trying to find out name of one of the bands that played Sunday around 5pm. I think it was the Melinda Bramle band, but not sure.
