The Superior Plumbing North Georgia State Fair is the largest fair in metro Atlanta and attracts nearly 300,000 people each year from north Georgia and neighboring states. The fair features live music, free attractions and shows, farm animals, sanctioned flower shows, blue ribbo competitions, local entertainment and delicious fair foods. There are also 40 games and rides on the Great James H. Drew Exposition midway – one of the largest carnival midways in the United States, featuring the Wildcat Rollercoaster and the Georgia Mountain Lift.
The 2016 Georgia Lottery Concert Series includes appearances by country and contemporary Christian artists. Concerts are free with fair admission, and take place rain or shine under a covered arena.
New for 2016
The Great James H. Drew Exposition midway, often referred to as America’s Amusement Park on tour, has added several new attractions.
The Clown House: A new state‐of‐the‐art fun house. The Clown House, a clown‐themed glass house, will take patrons through a glass mirror maze by entering the mouth of the clown. After making their way through the mirror maze, patrons will climb the stairs then navigate through other obstacles and take a slide back to the ground.
Lady Houdini: Kristen Johnson is no lovely magician’s assistant. She’s Lady Houdini, an escape artist who has successfully performed thousands of public feats and broken Harry Houdini’s record for the most water escapes. She is currently the only female anywhere in the world attempting the water torture cell.
K‐9s in Flight: Audiences of all ages will be entertained by this non‐stop, action‐packed performance showcasing the top K‐9 sports, including K‐9 dock diving, high jump and Frisbee all in a fun, high‐flying atmosphere.
Peter Hart, Atlanta Puppet: Atlanta Puppet featuring marionettes and other puppetry styles with master puppeteer Peter Hart.
