79th Annual Dogwood Festival (Piedmont Park)

Date: Friday, April 10th to Sunday, April 12th
Varies by day

About: The quintessential Atlanta spring festival that defines all other festivals. The festival all other festivals look up to and hope to be. Chocked full of artwork, food, music, a beer & BBQ event, and those cut puppies doing tricks, this festival has something for you, your friends, your family, even your children (gasp!). If you go to one festival this year, this is it. Get going. Piedmont Park is in full bloom. This is free to attend and pays back in spades in people watching, fried vittles, and beautiful weather. Other events, like the Beer & BBQ event do have a charge. See website for more details.
