Barefoot in the Park is A Fine Artist Market with Performances and Flavors and we are proud to celebrate our ninth consecutive year of bringing some of the most outstanding regional artists, entertainment, and flavors to Greater Atlanta and Northeast Georgia.
We focus on educating our communities in the arts through a fun, approachable and a non-intimidating festival-like environment. Proceeds from Barefoot In The Park go to the Barefoot Arts Education Scholarship Fund. Each year we provide scholarships to area fine arts students. In 2012 Arts Education Scholarship Fund provided $7,500 in scholarships awards and $6,000 in artist awards. Barefoot in the Park is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit. All Donations are tax deductable.
