MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND

10th Annual Barefoot in the Park is A Fine Artist Market with Performances and Flavors and we are proud to celebrate our Tenth 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 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 $53,000 in arts scholarships awards and $5,000 in artist awards. Barefoot in the Park is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit.  All Donations are tax deductable.
