NBAF presents The International Marketplace at Centennial Olympic Park in the heart downtown Atlanta, Thursday, July 12, through Sunday, July 15, 2012. The International Marketplace features artists and artisans from all over the world including Senegal, Ghana, Mali, South Africa, Haiti Brazil, Canada, India, Jamaica and Barbados; offering paintings, sculpture, fabrics, clothing, jewelry and more! Many of our corporate partners and sponsors exhibit at the International Marketplace as well, reaching thousands of potential customers in one weekend for a relatively small investment.
Centennial Olympic Park is the perfect venue to host the centerpiece of our 2012 National Black Arts Festival. The park is a tourist destination in walking distance to the Georgia World Congress Center, CNN Center, Georgia Dome, Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Philips Arena and hotels — which equates to additional foot traffic in the immediate area. The park’s Great Lawn provides a spectacular setting for the International Marketplace vendors and exhibitors, Main Stage Concerts, Family Programming, and the Children’s Education Village — while the downtown skyline serves as a beautiful backdrop.
