Yellow Daisy Festival
South’s largest outdoor arts and crafts show takes Sept. 9 – 12
STONE MOUNTAIN, GA –The 53rd annual Yellow Daisy Festival returns to Stone Mountain Park Sept. 9-12, 2021. Voted one of the top arts and crafts shows in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine, a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event, and winner of multiple awards by the Southeast Festival and Events Association, the event is a tradition for multi-generational shoppers searching for unique works of art.
The Yellow Daisy Festival gets its name from the September blooming of a special type of yellow daisy which only grows within 60 miles of Stone Mountain. First discovered in 1846, Viguiera Porteri, grows in bright bands of yellow on the granite outcroppings of the mountain.
The first Yellow Daisy Festival took place at Stone Mountain Park in two picnic pavilions. Over half a century later, it is the Southeast’s largest outdoor arts and crafts festival with more than six acres of art, crafts, and food to explore.
Over 300 festival crafters and artists are selected from a pool of applicants by the Yellow Daisy Festival jury to display their distinctive handmade work in categories including pottery, fabric, painting, jewelry, sculpture, fiber, photography, fine arts, and traditional arts and crafts.
Located at the park’s Special Events Meadow, admission to the festival is free with paid parking ($20 for one-day permit or $40 for unlimited annual parking). Festival hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Updates have been made to the layout to allow guests to social distance while enjoying the outdoor festival.
Listed in Frommer’s 500 Places to Visit with Your Kids Before They Grow Up and cited by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as one of “35 Natural Wonders in Georgia You Must See Before You Die,” Stone Mountain Park is located 15 miles east of downtown Atlanta.
