The Spring Arts Festival at Kennesaw State is an annual community event offering the chance for art lovers of all ages to partake in visual and performing arts activities.

We hope to see you in 2019!

    The Artist Market features artists’ booths offering wares and art for sale from ceramics, jewelry, paintings and sculpture to wood furniture, photography, and fiber arts. Alumni and student clubs are encouraged to participate. A juror will award digitally-submitted exhibitor applications based on technical ability, originality of the art, and quality of the booth display. Judging and awards for “Best Booth” will be held on the date of the event.
