The annual Marietta Art in the Park festival returns to Glover Park in Marietta August 31 through September 2, 2024. The annual art festival takes place in Marietta Square each Labor Day weekend and features a juried exhibition pieces by 175+ artists from all over the country as well as local artists from the Marietta area. All items are handmade original work including paintings, photography, jewelry, sculptures, woodworking, pottery, and more.
At the artist booths, not only can visitors browse and purchase art, they also have the chance to talk with the artists, some of whom offer demonstrations during the festival for a real behind-the-scenes experience.
