2021 DOGWOOD WEEK
MAY 10 - 16, 2021
Presented by Phoenixville Jaycees & Videon Chevrolet of Phoenixville
Phoenixville's Annual Dogwood tradition dates back to May 1943, when Retired Army Major General Edward C. Shannon dedicated a dogwood tree in Reeves Park as a memorial to the men and women of the Armed Forces, many of whom had died in active service during World War II. Since 1943, the Phoenixville Jaycees Foundation has continued the rich tradition of the Annual Dogwood Festival and Parade, with over 100,000 visitors taking part in the annual festival and 13,000 spectators viewing what has become the 2nd largest parade in Chester County.
For the first time in 77 years, the COVID-19 pandemic barred the Dogwood Festival and Parade from occurring in 2020. Now in 2021, restrictions are still in place preventing a typical festival, however the Phoenixville Jaycees Foundation is determined to ensure the Dogwood tradition lives on. This year we developed a week-long calendar of both socially distant and outdoor, masked events to celebrate the
spirit of Dogwood and our community in a safe way until we can return to normal.
