The Festival

Held in Brown Park in historic downtown Canton GA is the 16th annual Canton Festival of the Arts Festival, May 18 & 19, 2019.

The festival features the Artist Market, Serenity Garden, Jack Fincher Jr. Rising Artist Area, Kids Zone and Food Court.

The Artist’s Market

The popular Artist’s Market is the centerpiece of Canton Festival of the Arts showcasing more than 50 local and national artists. Visitors will find handcrafted works of art that include paintings, jewelry, pottery, woodworking, glass, sculptures, textile at a variety of price points and styles for purchase. All artists will be onsite to share inspiring stories and some will even demonstrate their craft.

Kids Zone

Lots of kid-sized fun is planned during the weekend. The Kid’s Zone will offer plenty of free make and take art stations and activities designed for the little ones. Don’t miss the opportunity to bounce and slide in the inflatable area (small fee to participate).

Serenity Gardens

Back by popular demand is the Serenity Garden, sponsored by Life Force Energetic Art, designed to enhance the art of gardening and healthy living. Guests will find farm-like items, plants, jams, jellies, soaps, and lotions. The beekeeper will be on hand to answer questions and to share their bee hives and the importance of bees in our communities.

Jack Fincher Jr. Rising Artist Market

This area provides new artists a platform to showcase their works of art. Students from around the county are invited to participate and sell
their art in the Jack Fincher Jr. Rising Artist Market, sponsored by Synovus.
