Dogwood Festival

The Perry Chamber of Commerce is proud to produce the annual Dogwood Festival!

We are celebrating the 26th Anniversary, and are proud we have been named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society.  

 Friday April 11th through Sunday April 13th, 2014. The Dogwood Festival has traditionally been comprised of a two day Arts and Crafts exhibit in Downtown Perry. We are excited the expanded 3 day Dogwood Festival will continue to feature a Hot Air Balloon Rally and a Dock Dogs Competition!



The Hot Air Balloon Rally is scheduled for Saturday, April 12th at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and will feature 15 Hot Air Balloons offering tethered rides, an entertainment stage hosting live music, kid’s activities, and much more! The gates will open to the public at 4 pm and the Balloon Glow will take place at dusk. The event will be $5 per person with children under 6 free. 

The entertainment stage will host everyone's favorite party band the Swingin Medallions!

The Dock Dogs Competition is being held in conjunction with the Arts & Crafts Festival in front of the New Perry Hotel on Main Street.  For two days visitors are treated to beautiful retrievers vying for points to enter the Dock Dogs National Competition held in the fall each year.  Delight in this free entertainment which is fun for all ages!

The traditional component of the Dogwood Festival will remain very much the same. The arts and crafts event entices thousands of people in beautiful, historic downtown Perry celebrating spring for two days! For 26 years the annual Dogwood Festival brings Perry residents and tourist to Downtown Perry each April. This free event showcases beautiful historic downtown Perry while featuring nearly 100 unique vendors.
