Decatur celebrates the ARTS with a weekend full of activities!

Mark your calendars for the “can’t miss” arts event of the year! With over 100 performances of various artistic disciplines, 130 artist booths, the Fine Arts Exhibition, and so much more, spend a weekend celebrating the impact and importance of a thriving arts community.

About the event:
Kick off the Decatur Arts Festival weekend with the ARTWALK, a single-night, city-wide art experience. Enjoy performances on the Decatur Square and in the Historic Dekalb Courthouse while you stroll between ArtSpots: local businesses hosting free art receptions with light refreshments. Don’t miss the Fine Arts Exhibition opening at the Decatur Library, too!
Bring the kids to the Decatur Recreation Center on Saturday from 10am – 2pm to partake in arts and crafts, family-friendly performances, inflatable play equipment, and more at the KIDS FEST.
From 10am – 6pm on Saturday and 11am – 5pm on Sunday, explore the incredible work of 130 artists at the juried ARTISTS MARKET, showcasing talent from all over the Southeast and beyond.
Grab a beer and vibe at the music stage on the plaza or laugh along with the comedy and theatre performances. Don’t miss the stunning dance presentations and incredible chalk art, too! With over 200 PERFORMANCES during the weekend, there’s always a great act to catch. Find the full lineup of performances at “decaturartsfestival.com“.
Grab a bite from onsite food and drink VENDORS or dine at our local restaurants. The whole festival is inside Decatur’s open container entertainment zone so you can take your cocktail or beer to go as you stroll through the market.
And be sure to stop by the FINE ARTS EXHIBITION during its special event hours to view 60+ juried works from across the Southeast and beyond.
