Outsider Art Trail Tour

Start Times: Trade Day 7am-2pm, Galleries & Folk Art Environments 10am-5pm
Paradise Garden Foundation presents the 4th Outsider Art Trail Tour on Saturday, June 5, 2021, offering a great road-trip option for anyone ready to get out and explore after being cooped up during the pandemic. Take a drive deep into the heart of southern small-town charm and quirk, wander down some rural byways, and celebrate the beginning of summer 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.
- Three Summerville art and folk art spaces — Folk America Gallery, Finster Framing & Art Gallery and the art space of Olivia Myers.
- Lunch on the patio or cool off inside at Jefferson’s for juicy 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 children), 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.
