The Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter and the Georgia Department of Agriculture are pleased to announce the opening of the Georgia Grown building during the 2013 Georgia National Fair, October 3-13.

The building will feature 20,000 sq. ft. of space dedicated solely to Georgia Grown products, manufactures and businesses, specifically geared towards Agriculture.

The Georgia Grown building will be open all 11 days of the 24th Georgia National Fair from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. daily, (3:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. opening Day.)

In 2012, more than 445,000 visitors enjoyed the Georgia National Fair and with the addition of the Georgia Grown building, we expect that number will rise!

Proceeds from the Georgia Grown building will aid in benefiting the Agricultural Youth Scholarships.
