Outsider Art Trail Tour
More Information:

Paradise Garden Foundation presents the inaugural Outsider Art Trail Tour on Saturday, August 18, 2018.  Leave the hustle of the city for true southern charm and local color at its best! Start your day early at a “picker’s paradise,” strolling through Trade Day (outdoor flea market) and digging for treasures. Enjoy walks through two great Georgia art environments – world famous Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden in Summerville and The Rock Garden in Calhoun. Visit three folk/outsider (and a little fine) art spots in Summerville — Folk America Gallery, Finster Framing & Art Gallery, and Vision Gallery. Finish your trip at Uptown Downtown Antiques. Somewhere in between, cool off at lunch at Jefferson’s for boiled shrimp and fried chicken salad or at The Willow Tree Grill for their specialty chicken salad and juicy burgers.  The Outsider Art Trail Tour is a self-guided, puppy-dog-friendly tour designed as a day of chilling, discovery and art contemplation. The Tour is free with Paradise Garden donation ($15 adults/$5 children), with donations appreciated at Rock Garden, as well. 


Make the Outsider Art Trail Tour a full weekend adventure! Consider our two nearby state parks for an array of overnight accommodations – James H. “Sloppy” Floyd State Park and Cloudland Canyon State Park –
