The Augusta Community, non-profit organizations, and local businesses come together to provide a fun, interactive area for children with lots of hands-on activities, street performances and more.

Arts in the Heart LOVES our youth artists and this market allows school-aged children and youth from Kindergarteners to High School Seniors to sell their artistic wares. It’s a fun area of the festival and a great way to support or emerging artists.


Family stage

Packed all weekend with family oriented performances featuring children’s dance troupes, theater groups, chorus groups and more, this is the perfect area to kick back in a lawn chair and enjoy an afternoon of wonderful performances. 

HotDog Stand

A popular spot in the Family Area is the Arts in the Heart Hotdog Stand, where delicious hotdogs are served up for only $2 each. Proceeds benefit the Greater Augusta Arts Council.


And if you show up with one of the special Arts in the Heart Coke coupons, you can get a free hotdog to go with your coke purchase!
