·We will have an artist demonstrating tie dye.

·We have invited artist to participate in “Paint our Festival.” This is an opportunity for artists to showcase their work during the festival, paint their own rendition of the art festival and if their work is selected it could be used as the cornerstone for marketing our 2020 Arts in the Park festival. If selected we would consider using the artists’ rendition of the festival in future advertising such as in our newsletter, possibly our festival poster, featured in some of the local tourist magazines, rack cards, etc.

·On Saturday, May 25th at 8:50 a.m. to meet at the Art Center (420 West Main Street) and march along with the Boy Scouts and the North Georgia Honor Guard to the corner of West Main & Depot St. and proceed to Flag Pole.
