September Saturdays Festival
Festival T-shirt Logo
September Saturdays is unique in that it is held on two consecutive Saturdays in September, so that people have two chances to attend. There is no cost to attend - charging for any festival feature might preclude someone from coming, and this festival is for everyone. Festival expenses are paid by Douglas County and the generosity of community-minded businesses, so that the festival, parking and all features can have free admission.
September Saturdays is held inside and on the grounds of the Douglas County Courthouse, 8700 Hospital Drive, Douglasville, Georgia 30134. Parking is available on the Courthouse grounds and on surrounding properties. A free van shuttle service is provided from adjacent parking areas.
September Saturdays 2017 will be our 15th year - and it will be bigger and better than ever!
Festival Features Each Saturday
11:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Festival
September 23rd Family Day + School Expo + Jobs Info Fairwill feature booths from schools of the Douglas County School System in which the schools will promote and explain their programs, and possibly raise funds for the school. The Jobs Info Fair will feature representatives from area industries and businesses that have jobs available!
September 30th Heroes Day + Touch-a-Truck Experience + Jobs Fair will feature equipment and vehicles from military, law enforcement, public safety, and community service agencies.
The proceeds from vendor space rentals in the Community Marketplace go to benefit Communities in Schools of Douglas County, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that provides after-school programs and mentoring for Douglas County School System students. The Mission of Communities in Schools is to help young people successfully learn, stay in school, and prepare for life. No tax dollars can be used for this program, so it is dependent on grants and donations to help at-risk students become a success. For more information, please call Mitzi Teal, CISDC Executive Director, at 770.651.2039.
