Dunwoody Homeowners Association hosts Georgia's Largest 4th of July Parade - kicking off at 9 a.m.


On Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at 9:00 a.m., the Dunwoody Homeowners Association and the Dunwoody Crier Newspaper will host the annual Fourth of July Parade featuring marching bands, floats, clowns, animal units and local celebrities. Last year the parade attracted over 2,500 participants and 32,000 spectators!

This year’s theme is A Small Town In A Big City, and the Grand Marshall is Alan Mothner.

The parade route is two (2) miles, starting at the intersection of Mount Vernon Road and Jett Ferry Road at 9:00 a.m., proceeds west on Mount Vernon Road to Dunwoody Village, turns right onto Dunwoody Village Parkway.

Viewing Information: Parade spectators are encouraged to setup chairs along Mount Vernon Road and Dunwoody Village Parkway (up to the shops on the right and the parade entrance into Dunwoody Village.) Spectators will be blocked from viewing the parade on the east side of Jett Ferry Road on Mount Vernon Road due to the staging and setup for parade participants. Viewing will start on the west side of Jett Ferry Road on Mount Vernon Road.

Dunwoody Boy Scout Troop 764 from St. Luke’s Presbyterian will collect food along the parade route for the Community Assistance Center (CAC) Food Pantry. The troop plans to enter a scouting themed float in the parade and will be pushing grocery carts along-side to collect the food donations.


After the parade join in the fun at the post parade festival in front of the U.S. Post Office in Dunwoody Village for family fun and great food!

Traffic Information: Mt. Vernon Road, between Jett Ferry Road and Dunwoody Village, will be closed from 8:40 a.m. to 11:40 a.m. (times are approximate; contact the Dunwoody Police Department about road closures and traffic information.)
