We've Moved to a New Location! Buford Town Park


We are excited to bring you to The 13th Annual Barefoot in the Park, A Fine Artist Market with Performances and Flavors! WE HAVE MOVED TO A NEW BEAUTIFUL LOCATION to Buford Town Park at the Buford Community Center & Theatre. Just 9 minutes from The Mall of GA full of restaurants, hotels and entertainment. Expect new abundant crowds, a family-friendly environment with an upscale vibe! It’s one of Greater Atlanta and Northeast GA’s most exciting, accessible spring arts events in an affluent, upscale neighborhood and surrounding communities.

We focus on educating our communities in the arts through a fun, approachable and a non-intimidating festival-like environment.  Where everyone of all ages can come out and have fun. Don’t forget, it’s Mothers Day weekend, so bring mom and the family out to let her pick something original for her special day!  

Proceeds from Barefoot In The Park go to our Arts Education Scholarship Fund. Each year we provide scholarships to area fine visual and performing arts students. Since the beginning, The Arts Education Scholarship Fund has granted over $60,000 in arts scholarships awards. Barefoot in the Park is a 501(c)3 non-profit. All Donations are tax deductible.
