About

the Brookhaven Arts Festival

The Brookhaven Arts Festival is a FREE premier event which takes place in one of Georgia’s fastest growing cities. Located about 5 miles inside the I-285 corridor and just north of Buckhead, this exciting annual 2-day event features a juried show of art from over 140 artists from across the country, a classic car show, children’s art section, live music, food and beverages.

Started by a small group of volunteers in 2004, the Brookhaven Arts Festival changed directors in 2015, and attracts between 8,000 and 12,000 visitors from around the region. The Brookhaven Arts Festival is produced with the input of local artists, community leaders and the Brookhaven Community Foundation, a non-profit organization.

Review from Facebook

What a great show this year. Selection of artists was simply amazing! It was diverse, highly skilled and beautiful. Thank you for doing and excellent job of planning and delivering this great show. Also keep in mind, you can bargain a bit with the vendors. We got 2 great pieces at low prices!
