Suwanee DayThe 2013 City of Suwanee event calendar includes six races, seven festivals, three movies, at least four concerts, and a variety of other traditional favorites including Woofstock, Trek or Treat, and the 30th celebration of Suwanee Day. Among the more than 30 events on the calendar are a handful of new ones being organized by private groups as well as two sponsored by the City: a September unveiling of the artistic, permanent setting for Suwanee”s 9/11 artifact and an event being called Food Truck Friday.

On Food Truck Fridays, to be held the first Friday of the month in May, June, August, and September, several trucks, offering a variety of ethnic and comfort foods, will pull up at Town Center Park. The community is invited to come enjoy a casual dinner and musical performances from the Town Center stage. On the first Food Truck Friday on May 3, local high school jazz bands will perform.

“People seem really excited about the Food Truck Friday events,”# says Events Manager Amy Doherty. “We”re pleased to be able to continue to offer area residents fun reasons to gather as a community at Town Center Park.”#
