About SCAA

The South Cobb Arts Alliance is an integral part Cobb County’s south side community and is one of the leading forces in the area’s arts and culture. Since 1972, SCAA has presented the South Cobb neighborhoods with hallmark events that celebrate the Arts, the majority of which are free or discounted to the participants and attendees. Through our efforts, we have opened doors to those in our community who might otherwise not partake in the Arts.

This community arts and culture endeavor is made possible through the partnership of the South Cobb Arts Alliance with Cobb P.A.R.K.S., Cobb County Board of Commissioners, area businesses and local volunteers. Together, we work towards the common goal of recognizing and supporting the area’s cultural arts, as well as preserving our cultural heritage.

South Cobb Arts Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, therefore, membership dues and donations are tax-deductible. Become part of our active, energetic, and diverse group of volunteers and supporters TODAY!
