Atlanta Dogwood Festival
April 19-21, 2013 in Piedmont Park
The Atlanta Dogwood Festival is Atlanta's annual celebration of the blooming of its native dogwood trees. For more than 75 years, the Dogwood arts festival has filled Midtown Atlanta's Piedmont Park with live music, arts and crafts, food booths and family-friendly activities. The Atlanta Dogwood Festival was ranked #35 by Sunshine Artist Magazine in their September 2012 issue featuring the best 200 fine arts festivals in the United States.
A juried art competition recognizes artistic achievement in such categories as sculpture, painting, jewelry and photography. The Kid's Village features arts and crafts, face painting, rock climbing and huge inflatables that are sure to please kids of all ages.
Another highlight of the Atlanta Dogwood Festival is the U.S. Disc Dog Southern Nationals, a world-class competition starring the top Frisbee dogs in the nation. Musical entertainment at the Dogwood arts festival ranges from bluegrass and country to rock and soul. And food options include funnel cakes, kettle corn, gyros and more.
