Community Events

Art is a wonderful way to help build and strengthen our communities. It helps to engage and inspire us and encourages us to reach out and connect with each other, express our creative voice and create shared experiences while working together toward meaningful outcomes.

It’s no coincidence the South Cobb Arts Alliance’s mission begins with to build our community and ends with to engage the community in the recognition and support of the area’s cultural arts and historic preservation.

As the community grew, so did SCAA’s commitment to all of you, our members, our artists, our educators and our volunteers. Our identity as an organization of over 45 years of activities may prompt recognition of events with more events to come:

• 30th National Juried Exhibit, 2017
• Behind the scenes with local artists with a gallery of art as their discussion
• Photography Panel discussion on Setting the Scene
• Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre Candlelite Concerts in the outdoor concert venue
• Concerts and candles on the grass at the historic property
• Storytelling Festival
• South Cobb Regional Library 1,000 words exhibit
• Mable’s Tea Room layer cakes
• Concerts in the Tea Room
• Recycled art exhibit
• Art Festivals
• Chili Cook-off

We salute our community with events designed to welcome and promote community engagement. We salute SCAA volunteers who support and work to reconnect artists, art educators, families, businesses, and other members of the community in the focus on the arts.

In the end, events do not alone define a community. The community and volunteers make the events special.

Storytelling Festival

Come to South Cobb Art’s Alliance annual Storytelling Festival, and find out how people lived, worked and played before electricity.

Learn what children did before television and computers. Find out what people ate back in the 1800. Step back in time every October and enjoy an event-filled day on the grounds of the Historic Mable House. Stroll through the property where storytellers weave stories, musicians play, spinners spin, new and old games take turns on the stage as hayrides wheels turn.

Learn some South Cobb history as you make crafts and learn skills from the 1800’s. Each year, learn something new- either how to make your own butter, shuck corn, or decorate a pumpkin. You’ll find lots of fun activities for all ages. Watch demonstrations of pottery making, blacksmithing, wood carving, and weaving. Interact with animals in our petting zoo, take a hay ride, and enjoy some BBQ or an old-time vegetable plate.
