Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival
The Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival at the Historic Fourth Ward Park is a two-day celebration for people of all ages, customs and interests. The Festival is a major celebration of the arts that honors the rich history of our community.
At this festival, there literally is something for everyone: fine arts and crafts, a children’s play area, local food and beverage concessions and live acoustic entertainment on the lawn. All this is within the environment of Atlanta’s most lovely park, part of the celebration on the BeltLine redevelopment. Formerly, this area flanked “City Hall East,” which is now under redevelopment as Ponce City Market by Jamestown Properties. This area is a prime example of urban redevelopment and innovation, benefiting the surrounding communities.

The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces was founded by artists, for artists; by the community, for the community. They respect the environment to showcase artists in public and hope you will, too!
