Suwanee Day Festival

By

The Suwanee Day Festival has always been a community festival.  The first Suwanee Day Festival dates back to May, 1984 and was held behind the current Gwinnett County Fire Station #13  - one year before Suwanee had its first traffic signal  - with about 75 people in attendance!  The area was growing and many new residents were moving into Suwanee. Not knowing much about our city, the hope was the festival would allow new comers to get involved, create a sense of community, while at the same time providing a venue where people would be able to show off their talents or skills.

By 1990 the Suwanee Day Festival was moved from May to September. In 1995, organizers moved the location of the festival from its Buford Hwy. location to Main Street in Historic Old Town. By 2004 the festival moved to its current location - Town Center Park. Today the festival is held on the third Saturday of September each year. The festival includes:  arts and crafts exhibitors, children's activities, parade, food vendor and free entertainment. To kick off the festival, on the second Friday in September the annual Suwanee Day 5K Classic takes to the streets beginning and ending at Town Center Park. 

Today the festival attracts over 30,000 people.
