Thank you! What an incredible 80th year we have had.
The 80th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival, presented by PNC Bank, welcomed 225,000 visitors to Piedmont Park during three days. We had more than 2,000 runners in the Mimosa 5K, presented by Publix. And we saw tens of thousands of selfies being taken at our brand new commemorative sculpture – remember, it will remain in Piedmont Park permanently as our gift to the city.
We could not have put on this special anniversary festival without the support of more than 300 volunteers; 260+ fine artists; 190+ high school artists; 40 vendors; 40 sponsors; 15 media partners; 10 consulates, cultural groups and tourism offices; 13 board members; 7 cultural alliance partners; 200+ performers and YOU! Thank you for coming to this year’s 80th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival.
We'll see you in Piedmont Park, April 7-9, 2017 for the 81st annual festival!
