Bringing the Fair to You
Celebrate the Georgia National Fair with us October 8-18!
The Georgia National Fair is one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the year at Georgia Farm Bureau. It's unfortunate that we won't be there to greet you all in person this year, but we invite you to help us celebrate this important annual tradition with us at home! From recipes to field trips to hash tags, we've designated a fun Fair theme for each day. Mark your calendars and join in on the fun!

Flavors of the Fair
October 15 - 18 | November 5 - 8
If you live near Perry, be sure to participate in Flavors of the Fair at the Georgia National Fairgrounds! The event is open to the public from 11 AM to 8 PM and is free to enter (free parking, too!). We're looking forward to visiting the Fairgrounds and chowing down on our favorite dishes!
Instructions from the Georgia National Fair: This is a “walk-up” event, meaning you will park in the West Parking lot (closest to I-75), walk in and get all the Fair Food your heart can stand and then we ask that you return to the parking lot for a tailgate/picnic experience! We do ask that you help us in practicing social distancing as well as taking advantage of the hand sanitizing stations that will be located on-site. We invite you to come out with your family, friends, co-workers for lunch or simply to grab your favorite dessert on the way home! We can’t wait to see you all at #flavorsofthefair October 15-18 and again November 5-8!
