75th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival

Marking an exciting 75 years of existence, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival took place April 15 through 17 and welcomed a couple hundred thousand attendees throughout the weekend.

The 75th Annual Dogwood Festival took place in Atlanta’s beautiful Piedmont Park and began with an Opening Ceremony & Ribbon Cutting on Friday. Other special events during the festival were the La Fête International Wine Tasting and the Friends of Dogwood Pavilion. The city’s favorite springtime tradition had an entire weekend’s worth of enjoyment with special additions like the vintage 9-story 1960s Seattle Ferris Wheel and Carousel and more than 250 fine artists from throughout the country in a variety of media like painting, jewelry, fabric, sculpture, glass and more. Over the weekend, attendees also enjoyed live entertainment on four stages and a visit from HLN money man Clark Howard.
