2023 Georgia
National Fair

For over 30 years the Georgia National Fair has been lighting up the October skies with twinkly lights, the smell of funnel cakes, and the sounds of roller-coaster rides and live music. This 10-day event is the biggest event of the year and features livestock competitions, mouth-watering food, national and international artists, rides, fireworks, and a baby barn with the cutest baby animals you’ve ever seen.

It's more than cotton candy, concerts,

and carnival games - it's a spectacular celebration of Georgia's vibrant culture, arts, and agriculture!
