Attendees will have the opportunity to glance through many collectibles and treasures that feature shabby chic and folk or something new and crafty for the home. Artist Alley will showcase works from more than 70 vendors. Local and national artists offer handcrafted items like paintings, jewelry and pottery, as well as market-style items, such as lotions, jellies, jams and sauces.

A small fee applies to some activities. On Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. the stage will feature local children’s dance groups, musical acts and more. These interactive performances will be fun and interactive for the whole family.

StreetFest is thrilled to welcome the Marietta Grassroots Music Festival again this year. Festival goers can grab their blankets and lawn chairs and support local musicians.
