Dunwoody's favorite summer festival is back, and we have butterflies just thinking about it. The 24th Annual Butterfly Festival will make its way to the Dunwoody Nature Center on Saturday, August 19, and if you call yourself a nature lover, then you will too. Not only will you have the chance to hand feed butterflies, but you'll also get to see birds, lizards, and who knows what else! Come rain, come shine, come to Dunwoody for this fun family festival just outside Atlanta.

It's no secret - we love food. Food makes us happy. It keeps us alive. It's the cornerstone of any celebratory event, and it brings people together. We think that food itself should be celebrated. So much that we devoted an entire week to it. Calling all foodies! Dunwoody's most delicious week of the year is BACK. Join us June 10-17 as we kickoff the 6th Annual Dunwoody Restaurant Week!
