The Georgia National Fair is like a Christmas tree in that each year you think it’s the best one yet! The 34th annual event offered daily free concerts sponsored by Georgia Farm Bureau, a new exhibit featuring Georgia cotton, livestock shows and the chance for attendees to witness a calf birth. Since a picture is worth 1,000 words, we’ll let this photo essay tell the story.





Georgia National Fair guests were able to see t-shirts being sewn together & screen-printed. Three special designs were available to commemorate the Seed to Shirt Exhibit.





These boys were fascinated to learn how the gestation crate protected the piglets when the sow got up to eat & drink.









Earl, the first calf born at the fair this year on opening day, drew crowds in the Baby Barn.









This observant child found one of the Lucky toys that GFB Ambassadors hid on the fairgrounds on weekends.
