Cumming Fairgrounds

In October of 1995, the first 5-day Cumming Country Fair and Festival was held at the Cumming Fairgrounds and it was an immediate success. Since then the festival has steadily grown in size to become an annual 11-day event. People from all over northern Georgia come to enjoy the many free daily attractions, free concerts, and free living history exhibits in the Heritage and Indian Villages where costumed entertainers thrill audiences with Native American dances, music and cultural exhibits.



At the Fairgrounds farming village, people can watch volunteers demonstrate the operations of a cotton gin, a blacksmith shop, a saw mill, a moonshine still with a cider press, a corn mill, a syrup mill and a grist mill. There is also an early 1900’s rural township on the Fairgrounds site with a working post office, a 1-room schoolhouse, churches, a general store, an art deco barber shop, a doctor’s office and a dentist’s office.

The Cumming Fairgrounds is much more than a great County Fair

In 2001, a 44,000 sq. ft. covered arena with a permanent seating capacity for 3,051 people and expanded seating capability for 6,000 more people was constructed at the Fairgrounds.

In addition to the Cumming Country Fair and Festival, the Cumming Fairgrounds hosts a weekly Farmers Market during the summer and events such as Cumming’s annual July 4th Celebration, the Christmas in Cumming Arts & Crafts Show, the IPRA World Championship Rodeo, the annual Steam, Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Exposition, Indian Festival and Rendezvous, Taste of Forsyth, Relay for Life, Laps for Life, Mt. Pisgah Auto Crusade, and many high school graduation ceremonies.

There always seems to be something interesting happening in the Cumming Fairgrounds. Cumming’s Recreation & Parks Department uses the Fairgrounds for many of their programs, community yard sales are always popular, and special events such as discount days are published in the local newspapers and announced on radio and television stations because they are always so well attended. For information about current special events, call the Cumming Fairgrounds at 235 Castleberry Road, (770) 781-3491.
