ATLANTA DOGWOOD FESTIVAL RETURNS TO PIEDMONT PARK

Nothing ushers spring into the ATL more than the Atlanta Dogwood Festival, one of the city’s preeminent annual events. The third-largest fine arts festival in the country and the longest-running festival in Atlanta, it never fails to draw a crowd. More than 250,000 attendees turn out each April to enjoy a variety of fine art, live music, food and midway rides. “One thing that makes the Atlanta Dogwood Festival so coveted is that this is the first place the public gets to see the work that the artists have created during their off-season,” says Brian Hill, the festival’s executive director. “In addition to the incredible visual artists, we have a fantastic schedule of live music this year, and we’re adding an all-acoustic stage back to the festival.”
