Atlanta Dogwood Festival 2020
This year's Atlanta Dogwood festival has been postponed to August 7 – August 9, 2020 and then cancelled. We'll publish the festival schedule, recommendations and events next Spring when it returns.
The first Dogwood Festival took place April 19, 1936. The founder of Rich's department store, Walter Rich, was the visionary behind the week-long event. Largely due to the popularity of the festival, the Dogwood Tree is connected to the City of Atlanta in a similar way that the Cherry Blossom is identified with Washington DC. The Dogwood grows mainly in the Southeast US, the Atlantic Seaboard and the MidWest.
