Thank You Blairsville Jaycees for all of your hard work and dedication to this Great Fall Tradition in Union County.
In the Blairsville – Union County area of North Georgia, the Jaycees have put on this festival for 39 years. While small in number, they accomplished by far the largest and most distinctive event of the year in Union County. The Jaycees request and get help from hundreds of citizens, firms and organizations each year to make the Festival the success it has always been.
Why you can search the world over for better Mountain Grown Syrup, but you won’t find any that compares with the Sorghum Syrup of the Blairsville area in Union County, Georgia. In early October the farmers of the Blue Ridge Mountains start cutting and stripping the cane – and before November comes, thousands of gallons of the best syrup in the world are ready to enjoy. Folks from just about everywhere, that have the hankerin’ to taste fresh syrup just off the cooker, flock to Blairsville, Georgia in October to celebrate the harvest and cooking of delicious sorghum. The taste of nature’s secret – a special flavor that comes from the soil, the mountain temperature, the gentle winds and that certain rich flavor that comes from the syrup makers of Union County. Come on up and try some sorghum while it is warm and just right for biscuits.
Please watch the video below and we hope to see you at the 40th Annual Sorghum Festival Next Year in Blairsville Georgia, in the Beautiful Georgia Mountains!
