REGISTRATION FOR THE 2023 GEORGIA NATIONAL FAIR WILL OPEN JUNE 2023
We would like to invite you to participate in the Georgia National Schoolhouse Program, here at the Georgia National Fair this October. As part of the 34th Georgia National Fair we encourage students from the state of Georgia to come attend our livestock shows, award-winning Stories of Agriculture display, all of the Georgia Grown exhibits and have the opportunity for a first-hand look at Agriculture outside of the classroom.Admission for the Georgia National Schoolhouse Program is FREE to all teachers, students, bus drivers and an allotted number of chaperones, grades Pre-K through 12th grade, with an approved field trip form. Field trips are available October 6 and October 9-13 and only available to schools in the State of Georgia.
Some chaperones may be subject to an admission fee at the gate (please see application for admission process).Once your class has been registered and approved we will mail you a teacher’s packet with information, along with instructions on where to park and enter the Fairgrounds. We will have Volunteers at the North Gate Entrance to assist in checking-in your class and will be happy to answer any questions you may have at that time. All field trips are self-guided at your own pace, please feel free to take your time and enjoy your day here. Each class is welcome to bring their own school lunches, however all lunches must be eaten in the North Parking Lot in the picnic area.
