Statue of Ellen Axson Wilson painting

The Ellen Axson Wilson Arts Festival, honoring first lady and Rome native Ellen Axson Wilson, is held in the spring of each year.

Art meets culture in Downtown Rome on May 2nd, where you can shop works produced by local artists and have fun for the whole family!

The day will also feature our second Rome Lantern Parade. The Rome Lantern Parade is a glowing procession of light and art along Rome’s rivers and historic downtown.

Downtown retailers located throughout the street festival will host sidewalk sales to help celebrate.

Do you want to participate? RACA members get their booth space FREE!
