The LocalMotion Festival will be set within historic downtown Hapeville at Jess Lucas Y-Teen Park. (See below for maps) Jess Lucas Park is filled with beautiful old oaks, a nice walking path, a shipping container artist gallery, and a historic church & carriage house. It is across the street from the Hapeville Train Museum and across the Railroad tracks from shopping and restaurants. All of this will make for the perfect setting for a festival. Hapeville has been building an impressive reputation for being an art-friendly community, thanks to the never-ending efforts of the city and the Hapeville Arts Alliance, with numerous murals and sculptures throughout the downtown and a monthly artist gallery crawl. We are proud to be offering one more great event to the list.
LocalMotion will have two unique opportunities for our vendors to set up. The two settings provide all of our vendors choices that we feel will set us apart from other festivals and allow us to grow into one of Metro Atlanta’s largest festival events.

– The Artist Walk Vendor Experience: 11 AM – 7 PM – These booths are scheduled to run from 11 am – 7 pm and will require vendors to tear down by 8:00 pm to allow for the main music event to take place and to account for the setting sun. This area is located on the two city streets that surround the park (South Central Ave and Atlanta Avenue). It is the largest area of the festival allowing for roughly 75 – 100 vendors. Sunset is 6:47 for the day and electrical will be very limited in the Artist Walk and will be offered on a first come first serve basis.
– Inside the Park Vendor Experience: 11 AM – 10 PM – These booths are for vendors looking to make a full day of the festival and maximize all of the hours the festival is officially open. It will be a long day, but we believe a very fun and rewarding day. Starting after 7:00 pm and running until around 10 pm, the Festival will morph into more of a Music event with several larger acts expected to play. Inside of the park has electrical that can be provided to you, though you have to provide at least 25ft of your own extension cords (we recommend more to be safe) Inside of Jess Lucas Park is a gravel walk that your booth will be just off of. YOUR BOOTH WILL BE IN THE GRASS, AND WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT YOUR SPOT WILL BE COMPLETELY LEVEL OR THAT YOUR ART WILL NOT GET WET IN THE EVENT OF RAIN. Jess Lucas Park is a beautiful tree lined park that is mostly level, with some roots from the 100+ year-old oak trees that surround it. You will not be allowed to tear down until after the festival is over. At the close of the festival, the parking lot will open up to allow vendors to pull in and tear down. No vehicles are allowed on the grass. Also no spikes will be allowed to hold down your tent. Please use weights.
