2023 Atlanta Fall Festival

September 8 @ 5:00 pm - September 10 @ 10:00 pm

Atlanta Fall Festival

The 73rd Atlanta Fall Festival is September 8-10, 2023! Atlanta’s first Fall Festival was held in September 1950, when the Atlanta American Legion took the initiative and proposed an expansion of the Atlanta High School’s homecoming and fall festival.

At Atlanta Fall Festival, we’re happy to showcase the talents of our local artisans and craftspeople, and create opportunities for local vendors. Browse the booths and find unique, handcrafted items that you won’t find anywhere else.  And don’t forget to sample the delicious food and drink.

We strive to create a fun and exciting environment that celebrates the unique culture and history of our community. Our mission is to provide a safe space for all to come together and enjoy the best of what our region has to offer. From the Bingo tent to rides and games, live music, a celebration of our first responders, and a community worship service, there’s something for kids and adults alike at Atlanta Fall Festival. Don’t forget to check out our family-friendly contests and competitions, like the prince and princess contest, pet parade, baking contest and auction, kiddie tractor pull, or our first bags tournament. The weekend activities will conclude with our Parade and an Ice Cream Social.
