Stone Mountain Park’s Dino Fest

Enjoy a new festival all about dinosaurs!

The paleontologist caregivers in Dinosaur Explore believe that human interaction is important for the dinosaurs, so they have decided to release some of them into the Crossroads area to roam among the guests. Be prepared for rustling in the bushes, footprints on the ground, and flying dinosaurs overhead.

See new high-flying dinosaurs, dinosaurs in 4-D, a lighted dinosaur themed parade, plus a special dinosaur Drone & Light Show.

Check the calendar for specific dates and times.
