Paradise Garden Foundation presents the 3rd Outsider Art Trail Tour on Saturday, June 20, 2020, offering a much-needed escape for those who have braved these challenging times while close to home. Take a road trip deep into the heart of southern small-town charm and quirk, wander down some rural byways, and celebrate the summer solstice amid the leafy beauty of Northwest Georgia!
Tour stops include …
- Trade Day, a giant outdoor flea market just outside downtown Summerville that has been a picker’s paradise since 1976.
- Two remarkable outdoor art environments – world famous Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden in Summerville and The Rock Garden in Calhoun.
- Two Summerville folk art spaces: Folk America Gallery, and Finster Framing & Art Gallery.
- Lunch on the patio at Jefferson’s for burgers and salads; or pick up take-out from any Summerville restaurant and picnic at Paradise Garden.
Self-guided and dog-friendly, the tour is free with Paradise Garden admission ($15 adults/$5 student/ $10 seniors/ under 12 free), with donations appreciated at the Rock Garden, as well. Pick-up your Outsider Art Trail “Passport” at any location, and, as you tour, earn stamps to qualify for a drawing for free prizes including an overnight Airbnb stay at Paradise Garden.
