2019 festival cancelled

 After consulting with local officials and Emergency Management, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Georgia Apple Blossom Festival. The safety of our vendors and patrons is of the utmost importance as well as the protection of personal property. Given the consistent and worsening weather forecast within the critical 48 hour window we feel this is the best decision for all involved.
