Who doesn’t love a parade! Dunwoody will hold its annual Fourth of July Parade on Tuesday, July 4, 2023 at 9 a.m.
In past years, the parade route has been as follows: the parade begins at Mount Vernon shopping center, follows Mount Vernon Rd for a couple of miles, and ends at the festival site at Dunwoody Village. Viewing tips here
Featured will be marching bands, drum corps, bagpipes, floats, clowns, local celebrities, and animals.

About the event
The Dunwoody Fourth of July Parade was founded in 1976 as part of the nation’s bicentennial celebration. It continued for just five years, but was revived in 1991, after the Gulf War, as a way to honor returning service members.
It has been an annual tradition ever since, and is said to be Georgia’s largest Fourth of July parade.
