Dogwood Festival 2022: Saturday, April 23rd

  • SAVE THE DATE: Dogwood Festival 2022 - April 23rd, 2022

    The Shelby County Education Foundation revived The Dogwood Festival on April 24th, 2021! We had a successful day, even in the rain! We want to continue this tradition for many reasons. First, this is a way to celebrate the community. Second, the Dogwood Festival highlights the arts and education in our community.  Third, we hope to raise money for scholarships for minority students who plan to teach and to give teachers grants to increase learning opportunities for students. Finally, the festival will help to revive the planting of Dogwood trees in Shelby County.

    Items donated to the Silent Auction will be auctioned on April 24th and the money will go to give scholarships to local students who plan to return to Shelby County to teach! We also hope to enrich teacher projects with funding from the Education Foundation soon!

     In 2021, Dogwood Vendors were asked by the City of Shelbyville to attain a Special Event's License. The City Council has since changed this ordinance and there is no need FOR VENDORS to have a special event's license this year!


    Because we are in the city, Food Vendors should learn about the special Restaurant Tax. Call Shelby County Tourism for more information: 502.633.6388 or click HERE for the paperwork and ordinance.

    Check back soon for a list of vendors, sponsors, and entertainers! April 1st is the deadline for registration!  We will see you soon!

    If it rains, we will have some indoor space in the Settle's Gym behind 1155 W. Main Street, SCPS Central Office. Tents are encouraged! In 2021, we had a great turnout even in the RAIN!
