LEMONADE DAYS – 2019

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of Lemonade Days! Started to help raise money to re-plant Dunwoody following the tornado that struck the previous year, we turned lemons into Lemonade!

Presented by the Dunwoody Preservation Trust, Lemonade Days will run from Wednesday, April 24th through Sunday, April 28th.  Lemonade Days is DPT’s primary fund-raising event, with profits from the festival going to the rehabilitation and maintenance of the historic 1870 Donaldson-Bannister Farm.

Visit the Lemonade Days Website

A must-attend event for Dunwoody families!  Lemonade Days is a 5-day festival, complete with more than 20 rides, a midway of games and prizes and all the best in carnival-style food. A fundraiser for the Dunwoody Preservation Trust, Lemonade Days is held annually, the 3rd week in April in the Brook Run Park. Proceeds benefit the on-going preservation efforts of the organization. The proceeds from Lemonade Days go to continue our efforts in the rehabilitation of the Donaldson-Bannister Farm.

Family Life & Transportation will include activities such as creating paper and quill pen, sewing, quilting, weaving, exploring period bikes, railroad, wagons, and horses.

Weeks 2 & 4 (June 25- 29; July 16 – 20)

School Days, Games & Music will include activities such as calligraphy, learning about and using chalk and slate, making and playing 19th century games, singing and playing musical instruments.
