Georgia National Fair

See also

‘Tis the season….art, food, and music festivals galore are taking place all around Georgia, and the one not to miss is the Georgia National Fair.

The Georgia National Fair is a state-sponsored, award-winning, annual event. It has been celebrating the rich agricultural heritage of the state since 1990. It is a fantastic family-fun event that offers livestock shows/exhibits, clothing/accessories/food vendors, games, rides, daily entertainment, and fireworks.

The Georgia National Fair opened on Thursday, October 3, 2011, featuring The Spinners, and there is still plenty of time to “catch fair fever.” It will be whirling, spinning, and tilting until Sunday, October 16, 2011. Parking is free. For times, and ticket information, click on this link.

The Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter are located at 401 Larry Walker Parkway, Perry, Georgia 31069 (478-987-3247), which is approximately 40-minutes from Macon if you’re traveling from the Atlanta area. It is a nice day trip, and the drive is scenic even with the minor construction taking place on I-75S. Just think of it as putting our skilled crewmen and women back to work.

Wear a good pair of walking shoes because the fairgrounds are expansive. For more tips on how to navigate the fair, click on this link. If you have little ones, pay close attention to the lost and found information.

The fair truly brings out the bright-eyed kid in all of us, and the view is particularly spectacular at night, especially if you’re gazing at it from a paddle boat on the pond.
