2015 Folklife Schedule of Events - With Banner

Folklife Festival-April 11, 2015

Connect with the rich, rural heritage of South Georgia during the Georgia Museum of Agriculture’s annual Folklife Festival.  The event showcases South Georgia history, art and culture, and features events and activities to please both children and adults.  A highlight of the Festival is the annual operation of the Turpentine Still. A ceremonial firing of the Still will take place marking the Historic Village’s annual turpentine distillation. Make sure you’re on hand to see and hear this age old process central to South Georgia’s history and culture. Other activities and demonstrations include sheep shearing, wool spinning, weaving, wool washing, log hewing, and various contests held throughout the day. Little ones can also enjoy having their faces painted. As always the day would not be complete without a ride on the 1917 Vulcan steam train. The festival coincides with the seasonal opening of the Wiregrass Farmers Market.
