The Cumming Country Fair & Festival at the Cumming Fairgrounds is one of those wonders and it runs from October 5 – October 15, 2017.

October is a fun time of year in Forsyth County as it becomes a destination for many people in the metro Atlanta area that seek out country fair and festival fun in North Georgia.

ATLANTA LABOR DAY EVENTS

Cumming Country Fair and Festival from October 2 – October 12, 2014

cummingfairOne of my favorite parts about living in Cumming, GA is experiencing the wonders of a small town while still being able to visit the big city of Atlanta.

The Cumming Country Fair & Festival at the Cumming Fairgrounds is one of those wonders and it runs from October 2 – October 12, 2014.

October is a fun time of year in Forsyth County as it becomes a destination for many people in the metro Atlanta area that seek out country fair and festival fun in North Georgia.

There are lots of special promotions and coupons running for the fair and lots of entertainment schedule for the event.

What are your tips for people new to the Cumming Country Fair? Since it has gotten more crowded over the years, my tip is to go during the weekday afternoon if you can. We have gone during lesser crowds and with younger kids, it has been a less stressful way to go!
