  1. I would like very much to participate in “The Marietta Art in the Park”. I was wondering if you still have any openings and what is the cost?

    Thank you and I will look forward to hearing back from you.


  2. I would like to apply for this year’s show. I noticed i missed the deadline…is it possible to still get in?

  3. Hello, I was told to contact you regarding this years Art Show.
    Please take a look at my website & see if at all possible that I may show with you this year.
    I’ve wanted to do the show in the past but was committed elsewhere.
    Thank You, George Nock

    • Hi George,
      Thanks for your comment. For more information about applying as an artist, please contact Carolyn Morris, Festival Director, at (404) 966-8497 or visit

  4. I was looking at a map and I don’t see where Cherokee intersects Waddell. Where is the parking?


    • Hi Darryl,
      Thanks for your question and hopefully this will help. The parking deck is between those two streets, not at the intersection of them. The best address we can give you for the parking deck is:
      Cobb County Parking Deck – Waddell Street entrance
      Hansell St NW & Waddell St NE
      Marietta, GA 30090

  5. I was a participating artists a few years ago & would like to return. Can you send me an application please. Thanks
