Come One, Come All, to the World-Famous Suwanee Fest!
‘The Greatest Festival on Earth’ Returns to Town Center Park This Weekend
Suwanee’s annual two-day celebration of community returns to Town Center Park September 21 and 22! Nearly 200 arts and crafts vendors and exhibitors, 15 entertainment acts, a tiny home, and one amazing parade are just some of the highlights of this beloved fall tradition.
The community festival kicks off at 9:00 am on Saturday, September 21 with a colorful parade that travels up Main Street to Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and then down Buford Highway to Town Center Park, where festival vendors – including fine artists, talented craftspeople, food vendors with a flair for flavor, and generous sponsors – will be set up through Sunday evening.
A high note of Suwanee Fest is the outstanding performing talent! The Town Center stage will be packed with talent all weekend, including America’s Got Talent alum Angelica Hale at 1:00 pm on Saturday, and headliner Queen Nation at 5:30 pm on Saturday. In keeping with this year’s circus theme, aerial silks acrobats will perform throughout the park all weekend long.

Kids ready to start their circus training will have the opportunity to complete four death-defying challenges in the Family Fun Zone midway:
- Tightrope Walk – an incredible show of balance and poise!
- Hoop of Fire Jump – a courageous leap through flames!
- Stilt Walking – awe-inspiring skill!
- Muscle Man Weight Lifting – astonishing fits of strength!
Those who successfully complete the challenges will earn their very own clown nose, and be well on their way to joining the circus! Activities in the Family Fun Zone are free of charge. Suwanee Fest also features a massive ride and games area, providing non-stop fun for kids of all ages (not to mention child-free shopping time for mom and dad!). Tickets are available for purchase at the festival for inflatables, small rides, and carnival-style games.
