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!

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!
