Sweet Pea the clown used a variety of specialize bubble tools to create gigantic soap bubbles to delight Streetfest’s preschool crowd at last year’s event.

Downtown Alpharetta will explode in full color Memorial Day weekend as nearly 100 artists from around the U.S. showcase their imaginative works at Alpharetta Arts Streetfest, May 25 to 27.

Presented by Splash Festivals, the Alpharetta Arts Streetfest is returning for its 15th year.

Festival lovers and art enthusiasts will enjoy three days of strolling through outdoor galleries filled with fine paintings, mixed media, photography, pottery, jewelry, textile, glass, wood, metal and paper art. The festival will also have free, hands-on art activities for children.

After browsing the amazing art, attendees can take a break to enjoy a variety of festival favorites at one of the many food vendors, or stop in to one of the many restaurants throughout downtown to taste Alpharetta’s local cuisine.

“We are excited to welcome artists from around the U.S. to showcase their creativity and talent to our community, said Janet Rodgers, president and CEO of the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau. “This incredible three-day weekend event is filled with culture, food and activities for the whole family.”

Alpharetta Arts Streetfest runs Saturday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The event will be located at 2 Park Plaza at Downtown Alpharetta Village Green with parking available at the City Hall Parking Deck and various street parking locations. Admission is free.
