We are proud to announce the Annual Northwest Georgia Regional Fair will be held nightly Friday, September 8th thru Saturday September 16th on Highway 53/Rome Road in Calhoun. The State Fair Carnival/Midway is sure to be the absolute best ever with a huge brand new park style ride from the Netherlands, Nemesis 360! New rides and all new attractions will adorn the midway as we will truly bring “THE FAIR” together for nine days of excitement, competitions, educational experiences and making memories!
We are excited to bring Dominquez Entertainment’s Thrill Show to the fair midway this year! For the first time in nearly 20 years we will be bringing back those adorable Famous Racing Pigs.
