Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival – Historic Fourth Ward Park - Saturday, June 27,2015-Sunday, June 28, 2015 – 10:00a-6:00p (Sat) and 11:00a-6:00p (Sun) - The Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival at the Historic Fourth Ward Park is a two-day outdoor event with an emphasis on the visual arts. Located in the newest public park in Fulton County, we set out with many different goals in mind: 1) Give back to the community through art; 2) Create a venue that emphasizes local and Georgian artists, so they have a show they can depend on in their own back yard; 3) Bring a festival to the folks in the northern part of Fulton county; 4) Create a festival for Artists by Artists, letting the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival; 5) Create a show unlike any other in the City of Atlanta, bringing together outstanding local, regional and national artists.
