Visitors can enjoy a celebration of the rich, rural heritage of South Georgia during the annual Folklife Festival on Saturday, April 7 at ABAC's Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village. Showcasing South Georgia’s history and culture, the event runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. with interactive activities for both children and adults.
The Folklife Festival is all about hands-on activities including tree debarking and hewing, sawmill demonstrations, sheep shearing, mule plowing demonstrations, and quilt square sewing demonstrations. Guests can also visit the antique and model tractors that will be on display on the Opry Shelter Lawn. The antique tractors will parade through the Historic Village at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. A can’t miss moment of the day will be the ceremonial firing of the Turpentine Still at 11 a.m. for the Historic Village’s annual turpentine distillation. There will be food vendors on site to fix your hungry appetite. Come join us for a fun-filled day!
