SUGAR RUSH FESTIVAL

Next Festival: October 2021 - TBD

Sugar Hill's largest and sweetest event of the year (and winner of Gwinnett Magazine's 2018 Best Festival!) features art, music, food and more!  For the 2017 + 2018 festivals, the Arts Commission transformed a parking garage into a Juried Art Show, hosted artist Greg Mike and Vivian Antoni to live-paint one-of-a-kind canvases and premiered the "Flow Space" by local artist Craig Tilley. Festival goers also enjoyed  Screen Printing their own Sugar Rush Posters, Drawing on a Doodle Wall, Hunting for Free Art and Making Sun Prints.

Want to get involved in some of these projects?  We are always looking for volunteers and new ideas for this annual event.  Join us at an Arts Commission meeting and make sure to subscribe to our newsletter to keep informed!

Public art enriches our downtown area, engages residents and visitors and showcases the vibrant personality of our Sugar Hill Community!
