With Summer in the rearview mirror, Gwinnett is gearing up for cooler weather, Fall Festivals, corn mazes (Buford Corn Maze & Corn Dawgs) and various haunted adventures, such as Netherworld Haunted House, listed in the Top 13 Haunted Houses in America.

From the nationally recognized County Parks to the local city parks, you will find an event (or many) each weekend! We also have an abundance of great shopping options and various arts performances, highly recognized dining and sporting activities. Gwinnett is one of Atlanta's most family-friendly destinations. Every weekend, visitors will find something fun, and often free to do! Visit the iTunes or Google Play store to download our free "Gwinnett Events" app, so you'll always know what is going on.

Families will love an inexpensive Gwinnett Gladiators game at The Arena at Gwinnett Center! Atlanta's only Medieval Times will let you cheer for jousting knights on horseback while feasting on a bountiful 4-course meal.

Festivals, concerts and special events - our calendar of events is never empty. Head to our cool downtowns - Suwanee, Norcross, Buford, Lawrenceville, Duluth or Peachtree Corners - for great dining, live music, cool shops & free events.

Korean food has made a name for itself in Duluth, where it is known for its multitude of highly rated Korean restaurants, such as Honey Pig and Jang Su Jang.    

Arts & music lovers - head over to the award-winning Aurora Theatre or to Eddie Owen Presents, where legendary promoter Eddie Owen hosts the best singer/songwriters every week.  Shoppers will love the Southeast's largest mall, Mall of Georgia, the outlets of Sugarloaf Mills or the open-air boutique shopping at the Shoppes at Webb Gin and the Forum Shops at Peachtree Parkway. The Global Mall is tops for ethnic shopping, gifts, foods and more. 

Reserve your hotel room online. You'll find great rates, with a range of hotels. Gwinnett County is an easy drive into nearby Stone Mountain where you can enjoy the Laser Show and hiking trails or downtown Atlanta, where visitors will enjoy the the new Aquatic Bodies Exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, Centennial Olympic Park, Piedmont Park and watching the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena.
