2019 FEATURED ARTIST
2019 featured artist, Thomas Burns, is a Professor of Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design known for his vintage travel images connecting with the history of Georgia.
Since its debut in 1968, Stone Mountain Park’s Yellow Daisy Festival has become one of America’s favorite and most well-known arts & crafts festivals. Featuring hundreds of artisans from all over the country, the Yellow Daisy Festival is held each year in the month of September to celebrate the blooming of the Confederate Yellow Daisy. (The daisy can be seen in its natural environment on hiking trails on the mountain).
Despite its growth from a small Arts & Crafts show to the four-day event that it has become today, the Yellow Daisy Festival continues to be a big show with a small-town feel. The mission of re-connecting families and friends with fun, shopping, live entertainment, and good food has remained constant over the years. Multiple generations of mothers, daughters, and grandmothers meander the wooded trails together in search of the perfect item.

If you are interested in becoming a food vendor at the Yellow Daisy Festival, you do not need to fill out a crafter application. Please visit the “Become a Food Vendor” link to submit your inquiry. Please include not only the services/options you provide, but also pricing and listing of other events/venues where you sell your product.
***Please note that the Yellow Daisy Festival has a high volume of attendees and we receive many inquiries regarding participating as a food vendor therefore we cannot respond to each and every inquiry. If there is availability or a need for more information, a member of our Foods Department will contact you for more details. We do keep all information on file should we have any other events or openings throughout the year.
If you are interested in performing at the YDF main stage you do not need to fill out an application. We do ask that you email your information to email@example.com. We prefer to listen to music/samples via a website or link vs. hard copy mailings of cd samples etc. While we have a select number of slots available, the Yellow Daisy Festival utilizes a production company to schedule performers and we also suggest to them any artists that we have heard and think may be a good fit for the Festival. ***Please note that the Yellow Daisy Festival receives many requests regarding performing at the festival, therefore, we cannot respond to each and every inquiry. If you are selected to perform, the production company will reach out to you for your availability prior to August.
If you have an activity that you think would be a great fit in our Children’s Corner, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us more about what you offer as well as pictures, pricing, and previous events in which you have participated.
The Yellow Daisy Festival Community Stage is the perfect place for school bands, show choirs, cover bands, local acoustic performers with original songs, or dance groups to be a part of the festival. If you are interested in you or your group performing on the Community Stage please email email@example.com.
Every now and then we receive an inquiry about the potential of hosting a Queen/Princess pageant during the Yellow Daisy Festival. At this time we do not have any plans to host a pageant during YDF as our mission is to truly promote the artists and their beautiful works.
Sure we will! Whether it was last year or 10 years ago, we will try our best to get you the information you need. If you could please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us as much as you can remember about the artist, we will be sure to work on your request. (A Tip For You: Anything and everything helps us in narrowing down the potential artists: Maybe you remember what state they were from, what types of product they had, a rough idea of the location of their booth, the more details and specifics – the better! We love playing detective!)
Often times we are able to accommodate this request. If you could please email us at email@example.com we will be sure to check with our merchandise team and see if they still have items available for purchase.
