Usher in our beloved weekend-long Suwanee Fest by joining us in the traditional one-mile parade down Main Street and into Town Center Park! Even if you aren’t marching as part of a club or organization, you can join the Red Wagon Brigade!
Cash prizes are awarded each year to floats and participants in a variety of categories, including best overall entry, best reflection of theme, most creative, and most entertaining.
In celebration of the bicentennial anniversary of the founding of Gwinnett County, this year’s Suwanee Fest will have a vintage Americana theme. So, we’re looking for you to party like it’s 1818 and come up with amazing themed floats, costumes, etc. that showcase the red-white-and-blue, colonial themes, or the celebration of all things Gwinnett! And, our parade will be visited by Button Gwinnett himself, joined by Parker, the city’s lovable mascot!
Select the appropriate button below and complete the form (all who register are officially entered!). Registration closes at midnight on Tuesday, September 4th.
This is to be completed by a parent or legal guardian of children who will be participants in the parade and returned to the person(s) responsible for your child during the parade (Cub Scout Leader, Band Director, Parent, etc.). This form is not required of members of the Red Wagon Brigade.
Click here to send us an email (select Parade as the subject). We will be back in touch soon.
New this year! Does your family yearn to be a part of the parade fun, but you’re not a member of a parade group? We invite all local community members and families to join the Red Wagon Brigade! Deck out your wagon, bike, unicycle, kids, even your pooch and red, white, and blue Americana finery and be part of this patriotic celebration!
Note: due to upcoming Buford Highway construction, the parade route is subject to change. We will do our best to communicate this change to registered participants as soon as we learn new information regarding construction progress.
