2020 CULTURAL ALLIANCE PARTNERS

Each year, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival teams up with some of the city’s most vibrant arts organizations, which offer hands-on activities and demos at the festival. We’re excited to announce this year’s Cultural Alliance Partners, including:

 

High Museum of Art Atlanta

High Museum of Art Atlanta

With more than 15,000 works of art in its permanent collection, the High has an extensive anthology of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American and decorative art; significant holdings of European paintings; a growing collection of African American art; and burgeoning collections of modern and contemporary art, photography, folk and self taught art, and African art. The High is also dedicated to supporting and collecting works by Southern artists.

Smartglass

Smart Glass Jewelry offers onsite jewelry making demos throughout festival weekend. The organization was founded by designer Kathleen Plate who started selling her jewelry in small boutiques in the 1990s. Her innovative work was recognized by corporations such as Coca-Cola and Aveda, who commissioned Plate to create jewelry from their product packaging. Smart Glass has achieved commercial success while remaining true to the values of craft and recycling.

Zoo Atlanta

Zoo Atlanta

Opened in 1889, Zoo Atlanta is the oldest cultural institution in the city. Zoo Atlanta is home to more than 1,400 animals, representing more than 200 species from around the world. From behind-the-scenes Wild Encounters with exotic animals to a leisurely stroll through The Ford African Rain Forest or a Scaly Slimy Spectacular reptile and amphibian experience, Zoo Atlanta offers something for everyone.

Out of Hand Theater

Out of Hand Theater

Since 2001, Out of Hand has created shows, games and activities in Atlanta. We design custom entertainment and activities for businesses, we provide free arts training to Metro Atlanta kids, and we collaborate with civic organizations to address regional issues.

The Dogwood Fairy needs YOU to save the summer! Help the Dogwood Fairy find her missing magical incantation to bring the summer season, flowers, and festivities. Along the way you will meet both friend and foe, including a troll, fortune teller, elf, and bard. But you will have to hurry! You only have a limited time to solve the puzzles and find the incantation before the season is lost. Gather your team and see if you have what it takes!

The Dogwood Quest is an adventure theater puzzle hunt and will take place at the Dogwood Festival in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park on Saturday, August 8th at 2pm. The Quest is free to play, but registration is required. Stop by our booth prior to 2pm to pick up your race bib and other things you’ll need to complete your quest. Play on a team of 2 – 5.

It is with deep regret that we announce the cancelation of this year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we had hoped to move the festival to a fall date, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone until next year. We know that you will agree with us that this is the right choice when considering public health and safety.

The good news is that we can announce dates for the 85th Atlanta Dogwood Festival, which is scheduled to take place in Piedmont Park April 9-11, 2021. We may be taking a hiatus this year, but we look forward to being back next spring to bring together the community and provide a reason to celebrate. #InThisTogether

This is the right call.

It is understandable during these times.. Looking forward to enjoying the festival next year.

It's a disappointment to many, but you made the right call, ....the only call you could have made. Thank you

Very responsible, thank you. See you next year.

So disappointing
