Many people are planning fall events and activities, and there is a lot of excitement in store for the residents and visitors of North Georgia. The northern part of the state is home to some of the most unique state fairs and festivals. Let’s look at some of the best options to consider for your family this year!


Oktoberfest is one of the most well-known festivals in the US, so you don’t want to miss out on the chance to partake. The festival runs from September 10 through October 30, so there is plenty of time to plan and attend. Beginning September 29, the festival will operate daily through the month of October.

You want to make accommodations in or around Helen, Georgia, to attend the festival. There are cabin rentals available for groups of any size, but refer to the company’s cabin rental policies to obtain accommodation recommendations.
