Georgia Mountain Fair

The Georgia Mountain Fair highlights a pioneer village, crafts, a museum, carnival rides, popular musical performances, and food in Hiawassee, Georgia. 

Check for the dates at the website:  www.GeorgiaMountainFairgrounds.com.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Georgia Mountain Fair includes a pioneer village.  It features an authentically recreated mountain town of yesterday with a mercantile store, one-roomed school, log cabins, barn, corncrib, and smokehouse.
 
You'll see authentic demonstrations of moonshine stilling, board splitting, black smithing, quilting, singing and picking.
 
Also, the fair provides lots of food.  Fried apple pies. Ice-cold lemonade, cotton candy, apple cider, and ice-cream!  Savor an ice-cream cone under the shade of an oak and enjoy the bluegrass music floating on a breeze across the fairgrounds.

Great Fair --and Fairgrounds --in a gorgeous area, near Hiawassee... There's something for everyone there.

Have you been to Gibbs Gardens --south of Amicalola Falls State Park??? Someone told me about these gardens and they look awesome. We have not been there yet.

Hugs,
Betsy
