Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta, Georgia is fun to visit any time of the year.  It’s fun to climb when the weather is warm.

But it’s also fun other times of the year when they have fun festivals.  There’s the Pumpkin Festival in the fall. Stone Mountain Park Christmas is fun during the holiday season.

And this year, they have a brand new festival!  This year, there is a Lunar New Year Festival at Stone Mountain Park.

The Lunar New Year Festival started last weekend.  But if you didn’t attend, don’t worry.  It’s open again this weekend.  You can visit from January 27, 2023, through January 29, 2023.

I’ll tell you about some of the great festivities at the event.

Lunar New Year Drone Show

The highlight of this event has to be the festive Drone Show, which takes place each night.  It is a Light Show on the largest screen in the world.  You get to watch 200 color-changing drones create aerial formations synced to music.  After that, you’ll see a massive Lunar New Year Light Show projecting images on Stone Mountain along with immersive lights and special effects.  All of this is followed by a fireworks finale!


Each night parades will take over the Crossroads.  The parades are led by dancers and also include music and drums, a lantern parade, and Dragon and Lion dance teams.


You can enjoy performances on the main stage on the lawn.  This includes:

  • Martial arts demonstrations
  • Dance
  • Music
  • Drama
  • Lion dance teams
