Annual Granite City Fall Festival a Massive Success

November 5, 2013

Perhaps the biggest Granite City Fall Festival since its inception – those words from Elbert County Chamber President Phyllis Brooks.

This past Saturday, thousands of patrons stopped by Elberton’s downtown square.

According to Brooks, everything aligned for an absolutely perfect day.

“It was a beautiful day, the weather could not have been better. The good thing for all of our vendors is that people were buying from them, and it seemed like they were enjoying buying from the variety of vendors we had on tap. A lot of people gathered at the stage to enjoy our great entertainment lineup this year as well”, said Brooks.

Brooks says they are not wasting anytime preparing for the fifteenth annual Granite City Fall Festival.

She said they are discussing an expansion of the agriculture corner.

“One of the things we are looking to do is to increase the agriculture corner, and the thing we are aiming to do is turn that into an agriculture festival”, said Brooks. “Doing that, we will have two areas of entertainment going on, and we are hoping to make that bigger and better in the future.”

Brooks wanted to thank the Elberton Granite Association, as well as MainStreet Elberton for their contributions in making the event a huge success.

A big thanks was also expressed by Brooks to the handful of volunteers that helped the well over one hundred different vendors set up and get organized.
