Spring Jonquil Festival returns April 27-28 in Smyrna

The city of Smyrna is preparing to host its popular Spring Jonquil Festival, which will feature two days of activities the entire family can enjoy. 

The 31st annual festival will be held April 28-29 at the Village Green in downtown Smyrna, and includes more than 175 arts and crafts booths, 20 food vendors, an entertainment stage, music and a slew of children’s activities.

Festival organizers have two things they will introduce for the first time in 2019. The first, the Jurassic Kingdom, allows you to interact with life-like dinosaurs throughout the show. The second features an inaugural appearance by Brian Ruth, who is known for creating works of art using only a chainsaw. 

The Jonquil Jog, a 5K run/walk, will kick off the festival at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 27 at Smyrna City Hall at 2800 King Street SE. Registration for the race is required, and can be done by calling 770-319-5401 or clicking here.
