When life gives you lemons, you take a Lemonade Day

Every spring Brook Run Park in Dunwoody hosts the Lemonade Days Festival, a four-day long celebration that has become one of the area’s most popular events. Ever wonder how it all began?

In 1988, Dunwoody was significantly damaged by a tornado. Which is hard to believe given just how vibrant the city is now. The Dunwoody Preservation Trust created a small event to raise money for the community to help replace the massive loss of trees due to the storm. The festival then continued to grow and is now a highlight of the year. Here is a video about the festival and its origins.  https://vimeo.com/123117636

Since fundraising is such a key piece of the festival, here are some additional community enhancements that owe thanks to Lemonade Days:

So come out this year to support the community while having a fantastic time.  Lemonade Days features

  • Carnival rides
  • Live music performances
  • Arts & crafts
  • Fun food
  • Games
  • Petting Zoo
  • Craft beer and wine garden
