Experience serenity and peace as the Stone Mountain Sunrise Association presents two simultaneous, non-denominational Easter services at the top of the Mountain and at the base of the Mountain on the Memorial Lawn.

The event began in 1944 before the land around Stone Mountain was officially owned by the State of Georgia. Lucille A. Lanford, from Stone Mountain First United Methodist Church, suggested that the church’s youth group climb to the top of Stone Mountain on Easter morning to watch the sunrise. The event grew from that one youth group to thousands ascending the mountain every Easter since.

The event is produced by The Stone Mountain Sunrise Association. Both services will feature sign language interpreters for hearing impaired guests.

Park Gates open at 4:00 AM. Summit Skyride opens at 4:30 AM. Please allow an extra hour or more for large crowds.
