The History of the Dog Festival

 Atlanta Dogwood Festival

The Atlanta Dogwood Festival has been in existence for 70 years! On April 19, 1936, Atlanta invited the world to attend her first Dogwood Festival. Walter Rich, President of ADF, sought to make Atlanta internationally known during the blooming of the dogwood trees, during the week long event.

The Dogwood tree is native to this area and trees were planted in all parts of Atlanta under the sponsorship of the garden clubs and public spirited citizens interested in the beautification of the city.

Pageants, parades, carnivals sponsored by the Junior League, and performances by the Metropolitan Opera, Philadelphia Symphony, and choruses from Clark, Spellman and Morehouse Colleges were featured.To read the Dogwood Festivals full history visit

Where Will The April Dogwood Festival Be Held? ? ?

Those are among the leading contenders for the April 4-6 arts festival, organizers will announce shortly. A third option is an undisclosed area of Midtown, possibly for a street fair-type event, festival Executive Director Brian Hill said in a statement e-mailed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution late Monday. The city and the Piedmont Park Conservancy announced Jan. 11 that the Dogwood and three other major festivals were being moved out of Piedmont Park because of Georgia’s drought.

Dogwood Festival officials considered a number of in-town alternates, but nearly all were unavailable because of scheduling conflicts. “We are down to one more Midtown site option before we are out of time,” he said in the statement. “If we can’t get a site agreement this week, we will turn to either Lenox [Square] mall or Stone Mountain as festival venue options. “Hill would not say exactly when officials would announce a final decision.
