The Atlanta Dogwood Festival

The first Dogwood Festival took place April 19, 1936. The founder of Rich's department store, Walter Rich, was the visionary behind the week-long event.

Largely due to the popularity of the festival, the Dogwood Tree is connected to the City of Atlanta in a similar way that the Cherry Blossom is identified with Washington DC. The Dogwood grows mainly in the Southeast US, the Atlantic Seaboard and the MidWest.

Is the Dogwood Worthy of Its Own Festival?

Creative Loafing's Jeff Slate asks residents:

Ric: "Definitely. When something can bring attention to nature, it’s a good thing. And they are beautiful, they’re beautiful trees. They’re kind of like the cherry blossoms in Japan. They only come a certain time of year, so you might as well enjoy them. The white blossom is different and really stands out in the midst of everyday green, pink and yellow. I’m not a botanist, but a beautiful flower is a beautiful flower. I’m new to Georgia and I’ve never seen a dogwood until I came here. It is a gorgeous tree and flower."

Gina: If there was an impressive display of them at Piedmont Park, then yes. But I’m from D.C, and the cherry blossoms are always so breathtaking and beautiful. The park here is lacking dogwood trees. It’s kind of silly to name it the Dogwood Festival when you only have five dogwood trees. In D.C. people go to see the cherry blossoms. It’s impressive. There are cherry blossoms! But here, call it a spring festival or something, so you don’t have any expectations of seeing beautiful dogwoods. Or plant some more dogwood trees.

Rosalyn: Yes. It’s a initial sign of spring. It’s symbolic of Christianity. It was the tree that was used for Jesus to be nailed to the cross, and the flower heavily resembles the cross. My parents and grandparents would always show them to us and explained to us what they meant. It’s the first tree I learned about. There’s a lot of sentimental value, especially for this area because it's the Bible Belt. The white is a symbol of purity. Most people, if they know their history, know what the dogwood symbolizes. And when you see them, they are just so beautiful.

!!The Atlanta Dogwood Festival
The first Dogwood Festival took place April 19, 1936. The founder of Rich's department store, Walter Rich, was the visionary behind the week-long event. Largely due to the popularity of the festival, the Dogwood Tree is connected to the City of Atlanta in a similar way that the Cherry Blossom is identified with Washington DC. The Dogwood grows mainly in the Southeast US, the Atlantic Seaboard and the MidWest.


The Atlanta Dogwood Festival has been postponed to August 7 – 9.

!!Is the Dogwood Worthy of Its Own Festival?
Creative Loafing's Jeff Slate asks residents:

  Ric: "Definitely. When something can bring attention to nature, it’s a good thing. And they are beautiful, they’re beautiful trees. They’re kind of like the cherry blossoms in Japan. They only come a certain time of year, so you might as well enjoy them. The white blossom is different and really stands out in the midst of everyday green, pink and yellow. I’m not a botanist, but a beautiful flower is a beautiful flower. I’m new to Georgia and I’ve never seen a dogwood until I came here. It is a gorgeous tree and flower."
 

  Gina: If there was an impressive display of them at Piedmont Park, then yes. But I’m from D.C, and the cherry blossoms are always so breathtaking and beautiful. The park here is lacking dogwood trees. It’s kind of silly to name it the Dogwood Festival when you only have five dogwood trees. In D.C. people go to see the cherry blossoms. It’s impressive. There are cherry blossoms! But here, call it a spring festival or something, so you don’t have any expectations of seeing beautiful dogwoods. Or plant some more dogwood trees.
 

  Rosalyn: Yes. It’s a initial sign of spring. It’s symbolic of Christianity. It was the tree that was used for Jesus to be nailed to the cross, and the flower heavily resembles the cross. My parents and grandparents would always show them to us and explained to us what they meant. It’s the first tree I learned about. There’s a lot of sentimental value, especially for this area because it's the Bible Belt. The white is a symbol of purity. Most people, if they know their history, know what the dogwood symbolizes. And when you see them, they are just so beautiful.

!!The Atlanta Dogwood Festival
The first Dogwood Festival took place April 19, 1936. The founder of Rich's department store, Walter Rich, was the visionary behind the week-long event.

::::
Largely due to the popularity of the festival, the Dogwood Tree is connected to the City of Atlanta in a similar way that the Cherry Blossom is identified with Washington DC. The Dogwood grows mainly in the Southeast US, the Atlantic Seaboard and the MidWest.

  Ric: "Definitely. When something can bring attention to nature, it’s a good thing. And they are beautiful, they’re beautiful trees. They’re kind of like the cherry blossoms in Japan. They only come a certain time of year, so you might as well enjoy them. The white blossom is different and really stands out in the midst of everyday green, pink and yellow. I’m not a botanist, but a beautiful flower is a beautiful flower. I’m new to Georgia and I’ve never seen a dogwood until I came here. It is a gorgeous tree and flower."
 

  Gina: If there was an impressive display of them at Piedmont Park, then yes. But I’m from D.C, and the cherry blossoms are always so breathtaking and beautiful. The park here is lacking dogwood trees. It’s kind of silly to name it the Dogwood Festival when you only have five dogwood trees. In D.C. people go to see the cherry blossoms. It’s impressive. There are cherry blossoms! But here, call it a spring festival or something, so you don’t have any expectations of seeing beautiful dogwoods. Or plant some more dogwood trees.
 

  Rosalyn: Yes. It’s a initial sign of spring. It’s symbolic of Christianity. It was the tree that was used for Jesus to be nailed to the cross, and the flower heavily resembles the cross. My parents and grandparents would always show them to us and explained to us what they meant. It’s the first tree I learned about. There’s a lot of sentimental value, especially for this area because it's the Bible Belt. The white is a symbol of purity. Most people, if they know their history, know what the dogwood symbolizes. And when you see them, they are just so beautiful.

In addition to an extensive artists' market and loads of grub vendors (legal ones, even!), this year's fest boasts a rather impressive music lineup: Atlanta party-funk crew Noot d' Noot will perform, along with local psych-surf dudes The Jaguars — not to mention Soulphonics & Ruby Velle and Atlanta garage institution The Forty-Fives.

?
As if all this musical fun in the sun weren't enough, tickets are on sale for the Home Grown Comedy Binge, the Friday night finale of a stand-up competition that's been brewing for over a month at the Laughing Skull Lounge in Midtown.

?
And c'mon, ya jerks, traffic's gonna suck this weekend, so take MARTA.

Perhaps due to its return to a home on the green of Piedmont Park, it drew crazy amount of people who clogged the streets and sidewalks of Midtown. Food, music, and various forms of artwork from dozens of exhibiting artists contributed to the agenda of the weekend event.

My parents and grandparents would always show them to us and explained to us what they meant. It’s the first tree I learned about. There’s a lot of sentimental value, especially for this area because it's the Bible Belt. The white is a symbol of purity. Most people, if they know their history, know what the dogwood symbolizes.

    The drought has taken a toll on the city's cultural scene, evident in this year's relocation of the ATLANTA DOGWOOD FESTIVAL from Piedmont Park to Lenox Square. The 72-year-old festival, beginning Fri., APRIL 4, may have a hard time convincing Atlantans to celebrate the arrival of spring at the mall, but if the weather turns dismal, everyone can shop! And it's close to MARTA! There will be the proverbial child-crack of inflatables, music and a large artists' market where you can purchase art, and if the price is right, maybe an actual artist. Interestingly enough, the festival was originally conceived by Rich's department store head Walter Rich as a way to lift Atlantans' mood during the Depression, so perhaps this year's festival can serve a similar purpose in our post-Bear Stearns economic slump.

They have looked at a number of possible sites - including Turner Field, Atlantic Station and the Civic Center - and all had scheduling conflicts. Another promising possibility was turning this year's event into a street festival along Fifth and Spring streets. Georgia Tech put the kibosh on that idea.

"Most major cities have a large street festival that includes fine art, music, food and family activities, not unlike the Dogwood Festival," Atlanta Dogwood Festival Executive Director Brian Hill said. "We developed a plan around Fifth and Spring streets, commonly known as Technology Square, with an effort to minimize traffic and incorporate local businesses. City officials evaluated the plan, and all parties thought we had an exciting solution to our dilemma." Unfortunately, Georgia Tech officials were concerned that the event could impact Saturday classes and research in nearby buildings.

Party poopers.

Hill says the festival is looking at one other Midtown option. "If we can't get a site agreement this week, we will turn to either Lenox Mall or Stone Mountain as festival venue options." Both facilities can host the event and have proven successes hosting events the size of the Dogwood Festival. "We appreciate the willingness of both facilities to support us; however, we hope to keep true to the mission of the Dogwood Festival and celebrate the coming of spring in Midtown," Hill said. "Perhaps if we can't be among the blossoming trees in the park we can at least stay within walking distance.""

This is an article from 2003. For all current information and additional links see Cl's coverage of the Atlanta Dogwood Festival.

The folks who put on the annual Dogwood Festival at Piedmont Park were informed yesterday that the park will host no major events in 2008 because of the drought.

That's understandable, but the late notice has left organizers scrambling to find a location for the festival, now in its 72nd year.

The festival sent out this press release today:

After the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation’s announcement that no large festivals can be held in Piedmont Park during 2008, the 72nd Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival must search for a temporary site so that it can present a viable event for its fans. This last-minute notification delivered to festival organizers yesterday will mean major changes are required for one of the South’s oldest and most beloved spring traditions, which is scheduled to open April 4.

“We were disappointed to learn that the City of Atlanta decided to not allow any large park festivals this year,” said Atlanta Dogwood Festival executive director Brian Hill. “In spite of the city’s announcement, we will remain positive and attempt to present the festival at an alternative and suitable location, retaining the very high level of entertainment quality we were planning for Piedmont Park. We understand the severity of the drought conditions and had previously presented an alternative layout to restrict the festival’s activities to the streets within the park. We had hoped the city would allow the festival to proceed as scheduled.”

For the past 71 years, Atlanta’s “Favorite Festival” (as voted by readers of Atlanta Magazine) has brought hundreds of thousands of visitors to the city, creating a valuable economic impact with a cumulative value of hundreds of millions of dollars. The festival has always taken care to reduce the physical impact of its audience on Piedmont Park and has paid for any minimal damages to the park due to the festival use.

“We share a passion for Piedmont Park,” said Hill “Our goal is to sustain Atlanta’s favorite springtime event for many years to come.”

An announcement of the festival’s revised plans will be released in the next two weeks."

Tammi: Yes. I try to come every year. The only issue that I have is that if it rains, it's just a mudfest. It's good quality art. We've gotten attention not so much as a local or regional art festival but we're getting more national attention, which brings more artists from across the country and the caliber of art is increasing. Atlanta is such a cosmopolitan city and artists know that they'll able to sell their art here.

Russ: No. The fact that they've banned dogs for the festival is a real problem for me. Babies and baby strollers are more of a problem. You have more of a chance from a stroller rolling up on the back of your leg and tripping you and breaking your ankle than you do being bit by a dog. I really enjoyed the art, but they took the dogs away and put too many restrictions and rules on the whole thing. I will not attend.

Amber: Of course. It's the real kickoff to spring in Atlanta. There's a lot of very, very talented people that show and sell during the festival, and then there's a lot of people like, 'What are you doing that you can afford a booth?' I'd always like to see less folk art. Everywhere. Around the world. And there's way too many people trying to hawk their jewelry. I'd like to see more traditional mediums, like oils on canvas."

Here's five acts worth checking out (but also visit www.sideshowatlanta.com for CL podcasts from the festival):

1) Anthony David: Check out this critically acclaimed soul artist continue to promote Three Chords & the Truth, and possibly sing snippets from his upcoming album.

2) Atlanta Bellydance: Do you think the performers or the audience imitating the performers will be more entertaining?

3) Heather Luttrell: The tattooed redhead may be most popularly known as a contestant from "Rock Star: INXS," but the singer/songwriter's true style is less pop, more blues. Catch her Saturday.

4) Bobby Yang & His Unrivaled Players: On Sunday, see this rock violinist if only to say you have, in fact, seen a rock violinist.

5) Slick & Rose: These ladies are the hip-hop hotness. Though they're still working on the follow-up to Objects in the Mirror, hear new material at their Sunday performance."

Sat., April 3
 

STAGE 1noon 23Jinx

1 p.m. HESTON — A native of the Dominican Republic, raised in Philadelphia, Heston has impressed countless audiences with his special blend of reggae and soul. His voice, which fits nicely into Atlanta's thriving neo-soul scene, is smooth and soothing. (Penrice)

2 p.m. DANIELLE HOWLE BAND — Playing a rare full-band show, lovably impish Danielle Howle shows off her divine talent for heart-wrenching tunes, as well as her skill for making audiences convulse with laughter between songs. (Nicoll)

3 p.m. RALPH RODDENBERY — Rootsy, Athens-based Roddenbery has an easy-going vibe that appeals to rock, country and jam band fans. The Cairo, Ga. native has collaborated with members of Widespread Panic, Sea Level and R.E.M. (Smith)

4 p.m. THE SWEAR — The Swear is the new vehicle for the raging rock anthems of the dynamic Elizabeth Elkins, formerly of Alastor. The explosive singer/songwriter stalks the stage like a hungry punk rock tigress pursuing her prey. (Smith)

5 p.m. Bill Mallonee

6 p.m. YONRICO SCOTT BAND — Derek Trucks Band minus Derek Trucks, Yonrico Scott Band brings together a resonant blend of jazz and R&B. Without Trucks' guitar virtuosity, Scott — an accomplished drummer who has played with acts ranging from Stevie Wonder to the Allman Brothers Band to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra during the past 20 years — assumes the spotlight. (Stein)

7 p.m. RANDALL BRAMBLETT BAND w/ CHUCK LEAVELL — Putting his gig as sideman for Steve Winwood and Traffic on hold, Athens-based multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter Bramblett takes center stage. With his burnished everyman vocals and introspective songs, he is a Southern voice of rare intelligence and soul. (Horowitz)

STAGE 2noon Amy Carol Webb, Michael Veitch, Caren Armstrong

1:30 p.m. Jo Serrapere, Lea Morris, Joanne Rand

2:45 p.m. Meike Koester Band

3:45 p.m. Maggie Simpson, Liz Barnez, Rebecca Folsom

5 p.m. Jan Smith and Peter Vogl

6 p.m. IAN MOORE — In recent years, guitarist/songwriter Moore has enlarged his sound, melding the blues-rock style that so defines his Austin, Texas, base with melodic pop leanings that strive to earn comparisons to the atmospheric and even psychedelic incursions of the '60s British invasion. (Moreau)

2:15 p.m. The Diane Durrett Band with Tom Grose

3:30 p.m. TISHAMINGO w/ DONNA HOPKINS — Today Tishamingo, the enjoyable Southern rock and blues band from Athens, joins forces with the soulful rock-solid wail of Atlanta's own jam diva Donna Hopkins. Expect free-flowing jams a-plenty. (Smith)

5 p.m. Michelle Malone

6:30 p.m. DAVE MASON — Mason, a recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, will revisit his past tonight with a retrospective set that includes samples of his work with Traffic ("Dear Mr. Fantasy") and his solo hits ("We Just Disagree"). (Smith)

Sat., April 3
 

STAGE 1noon 23Jinx

1 p.m. HESTON — A native of the Dominican Republic, raised in Philadelphia, Heston has impressed countless audiences with his special blend of reggae and soul. His voice, which fits nicely into Atlanta's thriving neo-soul scene, is smooth and soothing. (Penrice)

2 p.m. DANIELLE HOWLE BAND — Playing a rare full-band show, lovably impish Danielle Howle shows off her divine talent for heart-wrenching tunes, as well as her skill for making audiences convulse with laughter between songs. (Nicoll)

3 p.m. RALPH RODDENBERY — Rootsy, Athens-based Roddenbery has an easy-going vibe that appeals to rock, country and jam band fans. The Cairo, Ga. native has collaborated with members of Widespread Panic, Sea Level and R.E.M. (Smith)

4 p.m. THE SWEAR — The Swear is the new vehicle for the raging rock anthems of the dynamic Elizabeth Elkins, formerly of Alastor. The explosive singer/songwriter stalks the stage like a hungry punk rock tigress pursuing her prey. (Smith)

6 p.m. YONRICO SCOTT BAND — Derek Trucks Band minus Derek Trucks, Yonrico Scott Band brings together a resonant blend of jazz and R&B. Without Trucks' guitar virtuosity, Scott — an accomplished drummer who has played with acts ranging from Stevie Wonder to the Allman Brothers Band to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra during the past 20 years — assumes the spotlight. (Stein)

7 p.m. RANDALL BRAMBLETT BAND w/ CHUCK LEAVELL — Putting his gig as sideman for Steve Winwood and Traffic on hold, Athens-based multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter Bramblett takes center stage.

6 p.m. IAN MOORE — In recent years, guitarist/songwriter Moore has enlarged his sound, melding the blues-rock style that so defines his Austin, Texas, base with melodic pop leanings that strive to earn comparisons to the atmospheric and even psychedelic incursions of the '60s British invasion. (Moreau)

Be forewarned, dog owners: Man's best friend will have to stay home during next month's Dogwood Festival in Piedmont Park.

A city ordinance passed last year prohibits dogs from attending outdoor festivals expected to draw more than 10,000 people. According to City Council member Debi Starnes, the council approved dog-prohibiting portions of the Atlanta Outdoor Festival Ordinance because, at events like Dogwood, "It can get quite crowded. People bump into each other. Small children are walking in between people at the same level of dogs, and we have had several instances where dogs get agitated from crowds and ... snap or bite at people."

Julie Johnston, event manager for the Dogwood Festival, says she knows of only one biting incident, which occurred last year. "We had our first dog bite in 12 years at our canine Frisbee contest," Johnston said. Oddly, the Frisbee-catching contest is the one part of the festival where dogs — though only pre-registered ones participating in the contest — will still be allowed.

Johnston says that while she was unaware of dog bites outside of the contest, the City Council or the Atlanta Police Department might have that information. Neither could provide details about dog bites in time to meet CL's deadline.

Johnston says festival administrators will be doing what they can to help enforce the city's new ordinance at the festival, which runs April 2 through April 4. "If someone shows up with a dog, they'll be reminded that pets aren't allowed during the event." Dog owners will be handed a $5 coupon for Piedmont Bark, a kennel bordering the park that charges $20 per day.

Dorian Nerenberg, a dog owner and employee of Highland Pet Supply, reacted to the ordinance by calling it nonsensical. "If they're offering a dog-related festivity," Nerenberg says, "then people should be able to bring their dogs."



While prohibited from the Dogwood Festival grounds, dogs accompanied by their owners will be allowed in the off-leash area of Piedmont Park. For more information on the festival, visit www.dogwood.org."

  string(1573) "Singer/songwriter Caroline Aiken began serving as entertainment coordinator of Atlanta's annual Dogwood Festival in 1993. Since then, she says, "It's gone from kind of a craft show to a full-blown, critically acclaimed event that everyone wants to get into."

When scheduling acts to perform for such a varied crowd, Aiken tries to build on each band's particular energy "so there's an incredible climax of music at the end of the night." But the family-friendly festival does have its limits: "Everybody's got their kids along, so I need the acts to keep their clothes on and take the shock value out a just a bit."

This year, Aiken will have her own daughter, musician Page Dukes, along with her at the festival. "She's 15 and has traveled with me for 14 years," Aiken says.

However, as Aiken performs with Diane Durett and Donna Hopkins in her side  project, Women of Rock in the Round, her offspring will be competing for attention in another part of Piedmont Park. As "Page Spooks", the young guitarist and her Anti-Graves Misfits Cover Band will play the Z93 area at noon Sunday, the same time her mom is on the Fox 97 stage. "I may not  even play with Donna and Diane," laughs Aiken. "I think I'll just go over and watch Page's band."

Then there's Saturday night's headliner, Shawn Mullins. "He opened for me at Eddie's Attic when he was just a kid," Aiken says. "I asked him how long he was gonna play, and he said, 'Well, I only know three songs.' He certainly knows a few more now."

The Dogwood Festival is held April 12-14 in Piedmont Park.??

Mr. Peepers loves people. I don't like people. There's too many people here. They bother me. Mr. Peepers likes being out, but he doesn't like balloons, the shining balloons. They scare him. I got him a balloon for Valentine's Day and he went nuts. Something to do with invading his air space. I got his wings trimmed. He can fly down. Maybe the balloons can fly higher and that's why he goes nuts with them.

Wizard of Odd & Rocky
 Rocky loves to see all the dogs here and he loves animals and he likes it when people drop food on the floor because he goes right after and eats it all up. He loves the anchovy yogurt. It's a big hit here at the festival. Since he's wearing his fur coat all the time he's not real happy about the heat. I keep him wet a lot. I pour water on him and that makes him feel much better. When he gets too hot, he faints. I give him CPR.

Candance, Ric & Smash
 Smash loves all those little butts he got to sniff. He loves dog butts. And Smash took advantage of every tree and ice sculpture, wherever he could find a place to pee on. For food, he liked the grilled onions, and the pizza that hit the ground was gone in a second. The crowds at the artists market were a little much. He couldn't see the art. He was confined. Smash was whining and irritated about the parking, too.??
