Andersonville Historic Fair

Sutlers selling Civil War uniforms and accouterments, guns, swords, flags and Civil War era civilian clothing add color and interest as do craftsmen such as gunsmiths, blacksmiths, basket makers, quilters, weavers, and artists of all kinds.

Visitors from all walks of life came to Andersonville last weekend to enjoy a parade, sample the wares of the many food vendors, and take a trip back to a time when the nation was on the brink of being torn asunder by a brutal war. The first big activity is the parade on the main street on Saturday at 11 am. The Saturday parade, an annual favorite, includes a marching band and a wide variety of participants and entertainmen, and features marching soldiers wearing the colors of both the Union and Confederate armies of the civil war. Special entertainment include performances by The Southern Gunslingers, puppet shows, line dancing, clogging, bluegrass, jazz and country band performances, and gospel singing.
