The 2009 Suwanee Day celebration on Saturday, September 19, will serve up all those things that people love most about the festival – the food, arts and crafts, fun stuff for the kids, and all-day entertainment – along with a couple new twists and about 50 very special guests. The 26th annual festival will be held from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. at Town Center Park.
Soldiers from the 2nd Battalion 69th Armor Division (2-69 AR) at Fort Benning will serve as honorary parade grand marshals and as Suwanee Day’s special guests.

Two groups at Suwanee Day will offer unique ways in which to enjoy the festival. The Old Town Merchants Association is providing free trolley rides between Town Center and historic Old Town. And, as a fundraiser, the Suwanee Arts Partnership has gathered several pieces created and donated by local artists that will be offered through a drawing at its Suwanee Day booth.
Admission to Suwanee Day is free, but please bring a canned good or two to donate to the North Gwinnett Food Co-op. An all-day armband for the children’s inflatables area is $10; a small additional fee will be charged for other children’s rides.
