Due to a variety of logistical factors, including but not limited to size, advanced timing required of contracts and commitments, volunteer availability, and overall uncertainty of the future public health environment, the City of Suwanee has decided to cancel Suwanee Fest 2020 in its traditional format.
“We consistently welcome over 50,000 people to Town Center for Suwanee Fest annually, along with the 300+ volunteers it takes to host an event of that size,” said Suwanee Events & Outreach Manager Amy Doherty. “With so much uncertainty at this time, we simply couldn’t commit to holding Suwanee Fest in a way that would meet our community’s needs and expectations.”
We will be hosting a “virtual” Suwanee Fest in September so stay tuned, we will STILL be seeing you online for our 2020 show!
Usher in our beloved weekend-long Celebration of Community by joining us in the traditional one-mile parade down Main Street and into Town Center Park! Cash prizes are awarded each year to floats and participants in a variety of categories.
Suwanee Fest exhibitors offer a variety of hand-crafted items and delicious delights. Festival exhibitors include fine artists, talented craftspeople, food vendors who have a flair for flavor, and generous sponsors.
A high note of Suwanee Fest is the outstanding talent that performs in Town Center Park. On the stage and throughout the park, you will find dance groups, acrobats, solo artists, bands, and other exhibition groups with diverse backgrounds.
Yo-ho-ho!! Young seafarers can join us in Pirate’s Cove for some swashbuckling fun! Try a series of obstacles that will test your sea legs and challenge your pirate skills. Those who successfully complete the challenges might find themselves recruited for adventure on the high seas!
Parking is unavailable at Town Center on Suwanee Fest, and traffic in the Town Center area can be congested throughout the day. Please plan on taking the free shuttle bus for a hassle-free Suwanee Fest parking experience.
To help ensure a safe and successful festival, more than 200 volunteers assist with vendor set-up and load-out, picking up trash, parade line-up, parking, running errands, relieving vendors for short breaks, and much, much more.
