The annual Marietta Art in the Park festival returns to Glover Park in Marietta September 2 through September 4, 2023. 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.

Hello, I was told to contact you regarding this years Art Show.

I was looking at a map and I don’t see where Cherokee intersects Waddell. Where is the parking?
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
This is the best art show of the season. I save my $$$ for this one show. I buy every year. Don’t miss it!
I was a participating artists a few years ago & would like to return. Can you send me an application please. Thanks
