Show Schedule

Here is our show schedule for 2017. We are constantly on the lookout for new arts and crafts shows and festivals to take part in, so this schedule may change.

September 16-17: Rose Lawn Arts Festival

Location: Rose Lawn Museum, 224 West Cherokee Avenue, Cartersville, GA

Hours: September 16 — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. September 17 — Noon to 5 p.m.

Admission: Free

Once again we’re returning to the Rose Lawn Arts Festival in September and we are looking forward to it. We often have the same customers visit us year after year at this show and it’s wonderful to catch up with them. It’s a great place to get a start on holiday shopping as there are numerous craft vendors and artists here. The American Association of University Women will hold their book sale as well, and that’s always worth a visit.

September 23-24: Riverfest Arts & Crafts Festival

Location: Etowah River Park, 600 Brown Industrial Parkway, Canton, GA

Hours: September 23 — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. September 24 — 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission: 11 and older $5

This will be our third year at Riverfest and it’s particularly exciting because they’re at a new location for 2017. For its 33rd year Riverfest is going to be at Etowah River Park, and the organizers have told us parking will be more convenient for visitors and the layout will be better for everyone. The other artists on hand at this show always have something interesting on display, and we can’t wait to see what they have this year.

October 7-8: Georgia Marble Festival

Location: Lee Newton Memorial Park, 500 Stegall Drive, Jasper, GA

Hours: October 7— 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. October 8 — Noon to 6 p.m.

Admission: Adults are $5, children 6 to 12 are $3, and children 5 and younger are free. Veterans and seniors are $3. Weekend passes for families up to 6 people are $20.

We’re starting off October with the Georgia Marble Festival again, and this time it should be a lot different for 2017. The organizers have decided to increase the number of arts, crafts, and handmade items on sale, so we’re looking forward to seeing what the festival has put together.

October 14-15 and 21-22: Georgia Apple Festival

Location: Ellijay Lions Club Fairgrounds, 1729 South Main Street, Ellijay, GA

Hours: October 14 and 21 — 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. October 15 and 22 — 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission: Adults are $5 and children 10 and younger are free.

This year we’ll be at the Georgia Apple Festival for both weekends, and we couldn’t be more excited. We only did one weekend last year and it was incredibly fun, so being there for both weekends this year should be an absolute blast. There are so many artists to check out — not to mention the food available — that it’s a fun event not only for the visitors, but the vendors as well.

October 28-29: Chiaha Harvest Fair

Location: Ridge Ferry Park, 363 Riverside Parkway, NE, Rome, GA

Hours: October 28 and 29 — 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission: Adults are $5, students and seniors are $4, and children younger than 12 are $1. A free coupon is available for children younger than 12 on the festival’s website.

Every year we count our blessings that Chiaha Harvest Fair is right in our hometown — or at least near enough to make no difference. Chiaha brings new artists and crafters we’ve never met before, and those who have become friends we visit with every time. Good food is always on hand, and you can’t pass up a cup of free hot cider. It’s a large festival that hasn’t lost its hometown feeling, and we appreciate that very much.

November 4-5: Chastain Park Arts Festival

Location: Chastain Park, 4469 Stella Drive Northwest, Atlanta, GA

Hours: November 4 — 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. November 5 — 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission: Free

We’re very excited to be coming back to the Chastain Park Arts Festival down in Atlanta. This is an Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces show, and as always they have some amazing artists on hand. Last year we saw artists from around Georgia and from as far away as Wisconsin, and 2017’s event should be just as well curated. Last year was a great time and it’s why we can’t wait to go back. Please note: the address provided is the GPS address, but the show itself is along Chastain Memorial Parkway, which gets shut down for the event.

December 2-3: Rome Winter Art Market

Location: Rome Civic Center, 402 Civic Center Drive, Rome, GA

Hours: December 2 — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. December 3 — 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Admission: Free

The Rome Winter Art Market is where everything started for Hoot Owl Creations. It was the first show we ever did, and we’re proud to still be a part of it. Every year there is a remarkable breadth of talent and creativity on display, and the best part is that every artist is local. The Winter Art Market is a cozy show held in a beautiful stone building, and it’s just the perfect place to wrap up our 2017 show season.
