SNELLVILLE – For 43 years, the annual Snellville Days Festival has entertained and delighted residents.
On Saturday and Sunday, the festival will do just that at T.W. Briscoe Park.
The free event will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and from 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the park located at 2500 Sawyer Parkway and Lenora Church Road.
There will be free entertainment, arts and crafts, vendors, food and kids’ activities.
“We are celebrating the 43rd Annual Snellville Days Festival this year,” said Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Platt. “There have been many changes over those 43 years and I think that is what has allowed the event to continue to be one of the best events in our area. We continue to adapt to trends, we’ve made changes and enhancements to our entertainment each year, and yet we also are proud to keep the ‘hometown’ feel.”
Where else can you find racing pigs, alligator wrestling, stilt walkers and puppeteers?
“Our quality of ground acts, food vendors and crafters continue to rise, but we also are very hands on when interacting with sponsors and those local civic groups that are the foundation of Snellville,” Platt said. “We will continue to keep the festival fresh with entertainment and ideas, while always making sure we are connected to our community.”
On Saturday, event officials said it is strongly recommend those coming to the festival use the free shuttle from Snellville First Baptist church, 2400 Main St. E. It will run from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The shuttle will let you off and pick you up from the main gate at Briscoe Park. On Sunday the shuttle will be running to and from City Hall to the park from noon to 5 p.m.
