Peachtree City participates in the 74th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival

The City of Peachtree City will partner with the Peachtree City Tourism Association (PCTA) and the Development Authority of Peachtree City (DAPC) to showcase Peachtree City during the  74th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival beginning April 16, 2010. The Dogwood Festival is a three-day event that April visitors to Atlanta have enjoyed for the past 74 years. The PCTA and the DAPC are both dedicated to spreading awareness and encouraging conventions, groups, and leisure visitors alike to visit Peachtree City.

The 74th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival is the third oldest arts festival in the country and will take place on April 16, 17, and 18, 2010 in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park. The three-day event is free to the public and is filled with art, live entertainment ranging from music to comedy, a variety of food offerings and the fantastic Atlanta spring weather. The festival is the only fine arts festival in Georgia to be recognized as being in the top 100 in the nation and is expected to draw close to 200,000 visitors.

Last year, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival celebrated the diversity of the Atlanta community by adding an International stage to its offerings and bringing the city’s international organizations and consulates on board to create mobile art in the form of decorated golf carts. The program was so successful and well received by attendees that this spring the stage will expand into an International Village.

The mobile art will also be repeated this year and guests will be encouraged to vote for their favorite decorated golf cart at the Peachtree City booth, located in the International Village. The golf cart receiving the most votes will be honored and presented an award, by Peachtree City’s Honorable Mayor Don Haddix, at a ceremony to be held Sunday April 18, 2010.
