MARIETTA - Each May, the Marietta Arts Council debuts new and more expansive public art installations and performances at the M2R TrailFest. The City of Marietta’s Mountain to River (M2R) Trail brings communities together unlike any trail Marietta has seen before. From Lewis Park, through the Marietta Square, and ending in Brown Park, M2R TrailFest invites attendees to enjoy the parks, trails, and all that the City of Marietta’s artistic talents has to offer in an immersive day of public art.

The juried art event will celebrate the thriving art scene in Marietta and pay homage to the historical and cultural landscape of the entire city, all while encouraging new and returning visitors to visit again. The festival will reflect and honor Marietta through dance, music, performance, installations, the fence gallery exhibit, as well as the return of the popular sculpture and expanded mural tour.

On the Saturday of Mother’s Day Weekend, join the Marietta Arts Council at 11:00 at Atherton Square along the M2R Trail for the Opening Ceremony for the festival. Throughout the rest of the day, find a variety of celebrations of art along the trail, at Lewis Park, Atherton Square, and Brown Park. Join us at 6:30 in Brown Park for a special Closing Ceremony.

Interested in creating artwork for the 2020 M2R TrailFest? The Marietta Arts Council is currently seeking 2D and 3D artists, performance artists, musicians, and more to be a part of the Marietta Art Scene. Visit to learn more and apply!
