20th Anniversary Lemonade Days Festival
April 24-28, 2019
DUNWOODY, GA, Feb. 18, 2019 – The directors of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust (DPT) are pleased to announce the 20th annual Lemonade Days Festival, a five-day event to be held at beautiful Brook Run Park in Dunwoody.
This year marks the 21st anniversary of the 1998 tornado that tragically destroyed entire Dunwoody neighborhoods and led to the first Lemonade Days held as a relief effort for affected families. It has since grown into a five-day festival with something for everyone that last year attracted more than 80,000 festival-goers.
This year’s Lemonade Days will feature more than 30 exciting full-scale carnival rides, fabulous food-and-beverage vendors, a 5K run, a Country Store of multiple craft vendors, ponies, a petting zoo, and its now-famous Dunwoody Idol contest.
Bigger than ever, the event will again feature last year’s biggest attraction The Nemesis 360, the latest and greatest ride offered by Peachtree Carnival Rides and one of a handful in the country. The Nemesis 360 offers riders the thrill of substantial hang-time at its 80-foot top, with an impressive amount of G-force at the bottom.
The Lemonade Days Festival is the only fundraiser of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust (DPT), with the profits going to the continued rehabilitation and maintenance of the historic 1870 Donaldson-Bannister Farm – an historic restoration partnership of the City of Dunwoody, DPT and the community. Spring 2019 will mark the one year anniversary of the almost four acres of property as a public special-event and educational facility. This year the five-day festival runs April 24 through April 28.
The festival will run April 24-28, with the following hours of operation:
Wed., April 24, 4pm-10pm
Thurs., April 25, 4pm-10pm
Fri., April 26, 4pm-10pm
Sat., April 27, 10am-10pm
Sun., April 28, 12noon-10pm
Wristbands for unlimited rides are available for $20 (Wednesday) and $25 (Thursday-Sunday). Brook Run Park is located at 4770 North Peachtree Road in Dunwoody, Georgia 30338.
