Snellville hosts a lot of activities that you can witness every year. But the best time to visit the city is in May when the community celebrates the Snellville Days Festival, an arts and crafts festival held annually at the T.W. Briscoe Park.
The Snellville Days Festival, held every year since 1974, is a two-day event that draws crowds from all over the Southeast. It is touted as one of the top 20 tourism events in the month of May by the Southeastern Tourism Society.
Though a big event, the festival still boasts of a small-town flavor.
This year, the festival was held May 6 to 7 at T.W. Briscoe Park, located at 2500 Sawyer Parkway. Over 200 craft, food, sponsor and civic vendors joined in the event.
Children look forward to the annual festival days since there are a lot of kid’s activities that they can enjoy.
Aside from the display of arts and crafts products and other items, guests are also a witness to a live entertainment from select artists.
But if you can’t visit Snellville in May, come in fall and witness the annual Fall Festival, held in October of every year.
This year, the festival will be held on Oct. 21 at the Towne Green.
Still, if you are too busy to drop by at Snellville in those months, for sure you can make time to witness the annual Christmas Tree Lighting and parade at the Towne Green.
This year, it will be the 35th year of Christmas Tree Lighting and will be held on November 26.
The Christmas Tree Lighting activity is the most wonderful time of the year to share your holiday experience with your family and friends.
Every year, thousands of tourists and locals line up the streets to watch lighted floats, tractors and trucks that joined the parade.
This year’s parade will start at Wisteria Plaza at 5:30pm and ends at the Towne Green.
Santa, the important man of the season, will join the parade with his horse-drawn carriage.
Visitors will definitely have fun joining the many activities prepared such as cookie decorating, roasted S’mores, home depot build-it activity, illuminated rock wall and giant bounce house, bungee jump, caroling hay rides, horse drawn carriage ride, and lighted horse drawn Cinderella carriage ride.
Highlighting the event is the throwing of the switch by Santa and Snellville Mayor Tom Witts, lighting on the thousands of white lights that will glow throughout the Christmas season.
This year, an added attraction is offered, which is the Festival of Trees where guests and locals can vote for their favorite tree inside City Hall.
For a fun-filled day, visit the city of Snellville, where everybody is proud to be somebody.
