Beginnings of the Atlanta Dogwood Festival
The idea for the Dogwood Festival began when retail mogul Walter Rich, founder of Rich’s Department Store, sought to make Atlanta internationally known for its the beautiful dogwood trees in bloom during the spring season. Accordingly, on April 19, 1936, Atlanta invites the world to attend the first Dogwood Festival. Pageants, parades and carnivals sponsored by the Junior League, along with performances by the Metropolitan Opera, Philadelphia Symphony, and choruses from local colleges, all were featured activities for the inaugural event.
See You There!
So if you haven’t been to this “must see” event, make sure you attend this year. Nothing is more enjoyable than admiring dogwood trees in bloom in the spring. Hope to see you there.
