Suwanee Jazz Fest

The North Gwinnett Arts Association, in conjunction with jazz radio station WCLK, and in partnership with the City of Suwanee, is pleased to announce a new music event on the green at Suwanee Town Center Park this fall. The Suwanee Jazz Fest will bring five of the area's smoothest and most eclectic solo and group jazz artists together for an evening of sounds, tastes, and experiences under the stars on October 14 from 6-10 pm in the Suwanee Town Center Park. Local eateries, food trucks, and vendors will be jazzing things up with some delish special food, drinks, and cocktails to-go that add to the atmosphere for the perfect night out.

Trek or Treat

Summer may be over, but the City of Suwanee's event calendar is heating up! Perhaps the most beloved event of the year with the younger segment of our population is Trek or Treat. All the little princesses, monsters, super heroes, and witches will have the opportunity to do a costume test run at the annual favorite on Saturday, October 28 from 1-3 pm at Sims Lake Park.

The event, designed for children ten and younger, includes fall festival-style games, music, contests, and inflatables. Costumes aren't required, but strongly encouraged. Parker the Dog will, of course, be there in costume. We've even added a professional pumpkin carver, who will demonstrate his skills at the event!

Study to Remove Traffic Signal

In an effort to create safer, less congested, and more efficient access to I-85, the City of Suwanee is undertaking a traffic study to determine the feasibility of removing the traffic signal at the intersection of Sawmill Drive and Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road.

The plans call for connecting the raised concrete medians on either side of the intersection along Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, making it so drivers can only turn right onto or off of Sawmill Drive (eliminating the need for a traffic signal), extend the dedicated left turn lane for I-85 northbound by 400 feet, and ultimately allow for more efficient timing of other traffic signals.

The signal under study for removal process for the proposed median break closing and traffic signal removal requires undertaking a temporary 90-day closure of the median break, which will likely begin in September. Public comments can be made at Signalstudy@suwanee.com. Information provided to this e-mail address will be collected as part of the study process. Click here for more detailed information.


Solis Town Center

Town Center is Growing!

Big things are happening around town! Have you noticed some dirt moved, trees coming down, and general construction activity around downtown and Suwanee Town Center? We asked our citizens what they wanted, and they said, "More Town Center" – so we're giving it to them!

Solis Town Center Terwilliger Pappas began development of Solis Town Center, a modern 4-5 story mixed-use development adjacent to Suwanee Town Center.


Town Center
Park Expansion

Buford Highway

Buford Highway The Georgia Department of Transportation and City of Suwanee have partnered to develop a better Buford Highway that will handle a similar volume of traffic, but in a way that slows down vehicles while accommodating pedestrians and cyclists.

Town Center Park Expansion The design of the yet-to-be-named park is influenced by the style and quality of Town Center Park, but will have its own unique character, personality, and purpose.

Pierce's Corner The 6,000-square-foot building, constructed around 1909, is expected to be used for retail and/or restaurant purposes.
