Dunwoody Preservation Trust announces 24th annual Lemonade Days festival for April 17-21, 2024
DUNWOODY, GA, January 18, 2024– The Dunwoody Preservation Trust along with Presenting Sponsor Fifth Third Bank, Dunwoody, announces its 24th annual Lemonade Days Festival, a five-day event to be held this coming spring at beautiful Brook Run Park in Dunwoody.
Begun in 1999, the first Lemonade Days was held as a relief effort for those families affected by the 1998 tornado that tragically destroyed entire Dunwoody neighborhoods. With something for everyone, it has since grown into a five-day festival and Dunwoody signature event attracting an estimated 20,000 attendees.
The 2024 Lemonade Days will again feature full-scale carnival rides, fabulous food-and-beverage vendors; pony rides; a petting zoo; and the popular Dunwoody Idol contest. Making a second festival appearance, the thrill ride "Time Warp" and the "Deep Fried" concession stand featuring deep fried Oreos and Snickers among other delicious treats, will again be part of the must-experience list for festival goers. During the weekend, the First Annual High School Battle of the Bands will be held along with the Dunwoody Authors & Friends Booth featuring twenty-plus local authors and their publications for purchase and signature.
The Lemonade Days Festival is the only fundraiser of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust (DPT), with the profits going to the continued rehabilitation and maintenance of the historic 1870 Donaldson-Bannister Farm (a partnership of the DPT and the City of Dunwoody, voted as a "Best of Georgia" 2023 award winner for the Best Meeting & Event Facilities by the Georgia Business Journal, as well as numerous community events, educational programs for children and adults and Dunwoody’s only history camp for kids.
