The Creative Arts Guild’s 60th Annual Festival of Fine Arts and Crafts weekend will be September 15-17, 2023 on the Guild’s campus at 520 West Waugh Street, Dalton, GA 30720. The ticketed Preview Party is Friday night, with Festival FREE and open to all on Saturday and Sunday!

The weekend includes:
Indoor Patron Exhibit - a juried exhibit that spans the entirety of the Creative Art Guild's galleries (Gallery FIVE20, Gallery ONE11) and is open to artists over the age of 18 working in all mediums. This work will remain up through the end of October!
Outdoor Artist Market - featuring regional artists with booths full of artistic creations and treasures available for purchase, as well as food and beverage vendors.
Live Performances by local/regional musicians, artists, and Guild students in the Music Tent and Children's Hill
Children's Hill - Explore the world of art in our Children's Hill area! Kids of all ages can participate in activities and art projects, and even enjoy some special performances just for them. Then, visit the Children's Art Market where kids get the chance to purchase a piece of artwork that speaks to them - no grownups allowed! (Don't worry, grownups...the artwork is appropriately priced for kids.)
Self-guided tours of the Robert T. Webb Sculpture Garden, including new additions in celebration of the Garden's 10th anniversary.

We hope you will join us as we celebrate 60 years of capturing the power of the arts in our community!
