Atlanta, Indiana is a town of 750 people in northern Hamilton County, but each year on the fourth weekend of September, the town welcomes thousands of visitors. The Atlanta New Earth Festival spans two days and welcomes guests across Indiana and beyond.
This is Hamilton County’s longest running and largest festival. It started in 1974 with just 25 vendors. The name “new earth” comes from one of the original art shops in Atlanta, called “A Touch of Earth.”
The focus is on handcrafted items. More than 600 vendors are on-site, including arts and crafts, pottery, clothing, jewelry, antiques, collectibles, home décor plus a farmers’ market, kids’ zone, food and juried art area.
The 2019 Atlanta New Earth Festival is Saturday, Sept. 28 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 29 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., located at 105 E. Main Street, Atlanta, Indiana 46031.
