It’s no secret that we think the best place to live, work & play are the Georgia Mountains. We are quite fond of our mountains and we love to share with others what we think they will love! One of our favorites that kicks-off the same time of year, just before school starts in late July…is none other than the Georgia Mountain Fair, held in Hiawassee at the Fairgrounds. Our community refers to it as “the fair”. This “fair” is so much more than just a “fair”. With this being the 67th year they’ve been doing it, they really have gained a vast knowledge of how to make it fun, entertaining & educational all rolled up into one event. Our Georgia Mountain Fair
is held July 21-29, 2017 at the Historic Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds. Thousands of visitors from across the region travel to experience the excitement and nostalgia that they offer. With first class musical performances, arts & crafts, fun carnival rides, unique attractions and a glimpse into North Georgia’s rich history and culture, the Fair provides something for every member of the family. So make plans to stay the entire weekend and really explore the fairgrounds & spend a day on our beautiful Lake Chatuge.

“Old Ways” Demonstrations
“Old Ways” Demonstrations will take you back to the “old ways” as local folks show how “moonshine” was made…corn milling…shake making… cider squeezing…pork skin frying…quilting…black smithing…soap & hominy making and more.
Pioneer Village is a replica of just how the ole mountain towns used to be. A mercantile store with products and goods that only your grandmother might recognize. An old, one room schoolhouse, a log home with furnishings just like it was in the 1800’s, a smoke house, barn and corn crib are just like it was then. It takes you back.
