The M2R (Mountain to River) TrailFest is a public arts festival featuring a multitude of art installations and performances along the Mountain to River Trail. The Mountain to River Trail spans from Lewis Park near WellStar Kennestone Hospital to the pedestrian bridge near Brown Park.
During the festival, Atherton Square will come alive with new sculptures, complementing the existing mural program. You can also partake in free art drops and scavenger hunts, adding an element of excitement to the festivities.
Don’t miss the popular M2R Fence Art Gallery, featuring an array of photography and original artwork that stretches nearly a mile alongside the trail. This exhibition will be on display for sixty days before embarking on a yearlong countywide tour.
At noon, the Opening Ceremonies will take place in Atherton Square, situated behind Cool Beans and the Marietta Welcome Center, serving as the heart of TrailFest. Live music will continue throughout the day until 6 pm at Atherton Square, while dancers and aerialists will grace the Marietta Station Stage, located just north along the trail, offering performances throughout the afternoon.
