How about performers, fun activities for the kids and food – all kinds of food trucks and traditional fair food. So y’all come on out and shop!
An Atlanta Tradition
The Yellow Daisy Festival gets its name from a special variety of daisy that blooms in September and only grows within 60 miles of Stone Mountain Park, northeast of Atlanta. For some folks, the Yellow Daisy Festival is an annual tradition they wouldn’t miss for anything.
Fun For The Kids
Let’s face it – kids are not the best shoppers. Therefore, they’ll love an area that’s just for them! The Children’s Corner features sand art, storytellers, face painting and more! Also, there are covered picnic tables, so you can take a break while the kids have fun!
Come For the Shopping, Stay For The Music
This craft fair supplies its own soundtrack! Dotted throughout the festival are stages featuring various performers all weekend. Musicians, dancers, school choral groups – all take turns on the stages of the Yellow Daisy Festival. As a result, you get to enjoy the atmosphere and shop to the beat.
Soothe The Southern Appetite
Nobody is leaving the Yellow Daisy Festival hungry. An eclectic mix of food trucks are in full force, parked around the perimeter of an open field. Consequently, you actually can make sure everyone eats what they want. There is a covered area with tables and chairs, but feel free to bring a blanket and picnic on the grounds as well. Whatever food you’re craving, they’ve got it. Furthermore, you’ll find your favorite fair foods such as kettle corn, hot dogs and a plethora of fried foods!
Shop, play, dance and eat your way through Stone Mountain Park’s Yellow Daisy Festival! It’s great fun at one of Atlanta’s favorite family attractions! For more fall fun, check out Tween / Teen TMOM Jenn’s post on the top fall festivals for families!
