Welcome to Andersonville Arts Week! This event, hosted by the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, showcases and celebrates Andersonville’s strong connection to ART of all forms within our thriving community. Now in its 15th year, the former Andersonville Arts Weekend has been expanded into an entire week of festivities, with over 70 local businesses and over 200 artists participating across nine genres of ART: visual, theatre, dance, music, culinary, handmade, kids/family, literary, and public art, with a range of festivities and activities to represent each. There’s something for everyone at Andersonville Arts Week! On the Self-Guided Art Walk, explore the neighborhood’s unique shops and restaurants and see how they have transformed into galleries! Bring the whole family to our Wednesday night kick-off and enjoy all nine art genres in one space. Or bring a group of friends to the City Made Handmade Market before heading to brunch in the district. Whatever ART brings you here, we hope you are inspired to visit Andersonville time and time again. 3
