Peachtree Corners is putting on a party to celebrate the grand opening of its Town Center.

The mixed-use development has been in the works since 2013, when the land it sits on was first purchased by the city. Now, it’s home to 13 restaurants, shops and other businesses, with 12 more opening in the coming months. The lineup includes a dine-in movie theater, a spa and a plethora of dining options. There is also a town green, and townhomes are under construction.

The grand opening, set for Saturday, April 27, will kick off with a ribbon-cutting at the Town Green’s entrance at 3 p.m., followed by a parade that begins at 4 p.m. The parade will march along Medlock Bridge Road and Town Center Boulevard, starting at Peachtree Corners Circle and ending by leading people into the Town Center.

For the remainder of the event, guests can enjoy food from the development’s restaurants and other vendors as well as a DJ, “strolling entertainment” and an 8 p.m. performance from the Atlanta Rhythm Section. At the conclusion of the group’s performance, there will be a drone show that will “light up the night sky,” according to a city release.

There is limited on-site parking, but there are spaces to park and walk or park and take a shuttle, which will run from 4 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. There will also be a rideshare drop off and pickup location at Piedmont Bank, located at 5100 Peachtree Parkway, for those who choose to use services like Uber and Lyft.

The Park and Walk locations will be on DaVinci Court off Peachtree Corners Circle. There will be signs directing drivers where exactly they can park. The park and ride locations will be at 5430 Metric Place, 4725 Peachtree Corners Circle and 5390 Triangle Parkway.
