About Festivals in Georgia

There are many festivals in Georgia that visitors to the state will want to take in including the ATL Dogwood Festival, AthFest, Georgia String Band Festival, and Vidalia Onion Festival. The ATL Dogwood has been a staple for over 75 years. Artists from all over the world share their work at the Fine Artists Market which includes sculpture, paintings, pottery, and jewelry. Music fills the air along with a diverse selection of food. The AthFest takes place in downtown Athens and highlights local and national musicians and artists. Most of the acts take place on three outdoor stages so one can sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful weather.

One of the most popular Georgia music festivals is The Georgia String festival that takes place in the city of Calhoun. The festival showcases local and national string band, fiddle, banjo, and buck dancing acts. This event includes a spirited barbeque contest including pork, beef and chicken that one can sample the food of all competitors for a ten dollar fee. The Vidalia Onion Festival celebrates Georgia state vegetable. The event is highlighted by parades, chuck wagon cook offs, street dancing, fireworks, and every day a fly-by featuring the Blue Angels. All Georgia events take place through the spring and summer so one can scope out the one that best fits their schedule.
