The streets of downtown Alpharetta will be transformed into a colorful celebration of the visual arts this weekend.

The 10th annual Alpharetta Arts Streetfest will be held Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27.  The free, two-day festival will be held on Milton Avenue between Main Street and Roswell-Canton Street. Parking will be available for residents at Alpharetta City Hall, Milton Center (the old Milton High School) and the city of Alpharetta downtown parking lots. 

This event offers festival and art enthusiasts alike the chance to experience a wide variety of original art, live music, food and hands-on art activities. 

Alpharetta Arts Streetfest will feature artists from across the U.S. including Georgia, Florida, the Carolinas as well as Illinois, Michigan and Maryland. Festival goers can stroll through the outdoor gallery, meet the artists and acquire a piece of original art. 

A jury of local art professionals selected the artists to appear in this year’s show.  Artists featured represent a wide variety of mediums including mixed media, photography, pottery, jewelry, textiles, glass, wood, metal and paper art.

Patrons of all ages can also put their own creativity to the test at the upcycling art exploration area. The Scrap Exchange will provide clean industrial discards from local manufacturers and businesses and patrons will repurpose these items to create their own art.
