Suwanee Day Festivities at Town Center Park

Real Estate Agent with Solid Source Realty of GA - Suwanee

Suwanee Day 2008 LogoAs the leaves signal the coming of fall, Suwanee, Georgia is preparing for the 25th Suwanee Day celebration. Starting way back in the 1980's, the annual Suwanee Day celebration has grown to be one of Gwinnett county's largest local festivals. People from all of the northern Atlanta suburbs will come on Saturday, September 20th, to enjoy the food, fun, crafts and music at the beautiful Town Center Park.

In addition to the annual 5K run on September 13, BodyPlex Family Fitness is offering a Suwanee Day Race Runners10K route along the Suwanee Greenway. Participants may run in one or both races for the same entry fee. Registration is now $20, and T-shirts will be provided while supplies last. On-site registration will be available race day beginning at 6:30 a.m. The 5K race will begin at 7:30 a.m. The 10K starts at 8:30 a.m. Both races begin and end at Town Center Park. Awards will be given to approximately 70 individuals in various age groups and kids 12 and under who complete the course. For more information, contact BodyPlex of Suwanee at 770/614-6140.

The annual parade kicks off Suwanee Day at 10 a.m.; this year’s parade theme is, of course, “Totally ’80s.”

Visitors can expect to find nearly 100 vendors with a wide array of arts and crafts ranging from stunning jewelry and sculpted "face" candles to handbags and folk art. Young children will be captivated by the "city" of inflatables to encourage active play, while "tweens" and teens enjoy this year's new addition of interactive gaming experiences.

The activities include a full-day of free entertainment on the amphitheater stage to include local favorites the Everett Brothers, Suwanee Academy of the Arts, and North Gwinnett High School drum line. The final concert, sponsored by 94.9 The Bull, will feature The Lost Trailers with special guest Ricochet to cap off a full-day of fun.

Hey DeWayne ~  I love fall festivals.  Especially since we don't really have FALL festivials.  Beleive it or not, the first true fall festival I went to was in up state New York.  Floridians don't really get to understand how much fun the fall festivals are since we don't even have a fall.

Anyway, have a great time and maybe next year I can catch it!
