Fairburn Festival of Arts, Antiques and Music coming Oct. 2

Fairburn’s Festival of Arts, Antiques and Music is back by after an absence of three years. The festival takes place in the heart of downtown Fairburn on Saturday, October 2 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The festivities will include children’s activities, musical performances, art and antique dealers, a food court and street entertainment, fun and games for the entire family and the much awaited Fairburn Festival Parade.

The Fairburn’s Festival of Arts, Antiques and Music is part of the Fulton County Arts Council’s, Tour de 29. The Festival has been created as an event designed to bring together the “best of the best” from the arts and music community. The festival provides a venue for artists, antique dealers and musicians to showcase their wares in an environment which gives the Fairburn community and surrounding communities the chance to engage in an enriching and family oriented environment.

The Fairburn’s Festival of Arts, Antiques and Music is located in downtown Fairburn on West Broad Street at the intersection of Highway 29 and Highway 92. Admission to the Festival is free and open to the general public.

For those interested in participating in the festival as artists, antique dealers, or food vendors, the City of Fairburn is accepting applications.
