The Perry Chamber of Commerce is proud to produce the annual Dogwood Festival! We are celebrating the 26th Anniversary April 11th thruogh 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 Dogwood Festival will continue to feature a Hot Air Balloon Rally and a DockDogs Competition!
The Hot Air Balloon Rally is scheduled for 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 DockDogs 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 DockDogs 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!
