About the Georgia National Fair:

The Georgia National Fair, Georgia's annual state-sponsored fair, has won more than 80 awards from the International Association of Fairs and Expositions for its livestock and horse events, competitive exhibits, and communications programs since the Fair opened in 1990. Featuring family-oriented entertainment and educational fun, the Georgia National Fair showcases Georgia's agriculture, the state's largest industry. The Georgia National Fairgrounds site features over 1,100 landscaped acres including fountains, lakes and gardens.

In addition to top entertainment, competitions and all of the midway excitement of a state fair, the Georgia National Fair's Schoolhouse offers students on Educational Tours from throughout the state the opportunity to explore numerous educational exhibits and to enjoy an array of special Fair activities at no charge.
