Art also includes music and other performances. In its 11th year, the award-winning International Stage on the Lake Clara Meer dock brings hundreds of performers representing countries throughout the world to the festival.
“Highlighting the many international communities that live in Atlanta, the International Stage features professional and amateur performers, children and adults with genres including dance, singing, martial arts, drumming and more,” the website notes. Additional music performances will take place on the Coca-Cola Main Stage.
Because of expenses caused by the coronavirus pandemic and to keep the nonprofit running, the Atlanta Dogwood festival is requesting a $5 general admission donation that can be given at the gate or online. Those donating in advance will receive priority entrance into the festival.
If you spring for the VIP experience, you can attend ticketed culinary events held throughout the weekend overlooking the Coca-Cola Main Stage. You’ll enjoy food from local chefs plus wine, beer and cocktail tastings. Each event is an all-inclusive culinary experience with private restrooms. Limited tickets and reserved tables with umbrellas are available.

Saturday’s Beauty & the Beasts VIP experience, also 4:30-8:30 p.m., costs $75 plus the processing fee.
Sunday’s event will be a version of Peachfest, including a menu of local plants and proteins paired with the state’s signature fruit: the Georgia peach. Tickets are $75 plus the processing free for the 1:30-5:30 p.m. event.
