Georgia Folk Festival
Adopted in 1992
Thousands of delighted Georgians and tourists watch seamstresses spin yarn, blacksmiths hammer horseshoes, basket makers weave strips of white oak, and musicians play fiddles and banjos at the Georgia Folk Festival. First organized by the Georgia 4-H Foundation and the University of Georgia's Cooperative Extension Service, the annual Georgia Folk Festival introduces today's television generation to the handmade goods and joys of yesteryear.
