The Georgia National Fair has promoted the state’s heritage, people, and agriculture since the first Fair in 1990. The Fair offers a safe and clean, family-oriented environment. The Fair is well-known for its comprehensive youth and home and fine arts competitions and exhibits. The Georgia National Schoolhouse attracts pre-K through high school students from throughout the state to tour the educational and livestock displays.

One of the newest features of the Fair is the Georgia Grown Building. This is a joint project of the Georgia National Fair and the Georgia Department of Agriculture. During the 11 days of the Fair, the building features space dedicated solely to Georgia Grown products, manufacturers, and agricultural businesses.
