Carrollton Fine Arts and Crafts MeccaFest (http://www.meccafest.com/index.php), (rated number one event by EMC’s Georgia Magazine (http://georgiamagazine.com/)), features 70 fine artists from across the country. This juried family friendly festival showcases a wide variety of art mediums. Come drink in fabulous art at this 11th annual event. Eat on site at a 1950’s diner or one of Carrollton’s fine surrounding restaurants. Free children’s activities and entertainment are provided. Admission to the festival is free.

MeccaFest will welcome back performance artist Mark Abbati to entertain the crowds with his Living Sculptures (Something unique and different each day!) In addition, we will have swarms of Sesame Street style puppeteers roaming the festival from the UWG theatre department and a new 3-D Chalk artist, Michael Macaulay from California. Many of the exhibiting artists will demonstrate their talents. The festival will feature five free children activity booths where young people can create with local artists. An entertainment stage will showcase local and regional musicians and dancers and a separate area for staged readings of poetry and short stories.

Over $5,000 in cash will be awarded to the Mecca artists. Patrons and Businesses may also present awards to Mecca artists through the Patron or Corporate Purchase Programs. (Call the Art Center for Patron/Corporate Purchase information or download from this site.)
