Saturday marks day 3 of the Stone Mountain Park 48th Annual Yellow Daisy Festival featuring more than 425 artists. The event is consistently designated as one of the top five arts and crafts shows in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine. 

The festival is held annually in September to celebrate the blooming of a special type of Yellow Daisy which only grows within 60 miles of Stone Mountain. First discovered in 1846, Viguiera Porteri grows in bright bands of yellow on the granite outcroppings of the mountain.

Festival crafters and artists are selected from a pool of applicants by the Yellow Daisy Festival jury to display their distinctive handmade work in categories including pottery, fabric, painting, jewelry, sculpture, fiber, photography, fine arts and traditional arts and crafts. The celebration attracts an estimated 200,000 multigenerational shopping enthusiasts.

The Yellow Daisy Festival is presented by Humana. For more information please call Stone Mountain Park
