New in 2022, visit the Yellow Daisy Vintage Village! Located within the lower meadow of Yellow Daisy Festival, this highly curated village of vendors from across the globe will showcase antiques, vintage collectibles, and amazing farmhouse chic home goods and décor.
The Yellow Daisy Festival gets its name from the September 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.
The first Yellow Daisy Festival took place at Stone Mountain Park in two picnic pavilions. Over half a century later, it is the Southeast’s largest outdoor arts and crafts festival with more than six acres of art, crafts, music, and food to explore.
Over 350 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.
