Overview:

September Saturdays is the largest annual festival and community event in Douglas County. Its sole purpose is to foster community by creating an event where any resident, regardless of the situation, can come and enjoy fun, fellowship, camaraderie, and inclusion. A community only gets stronger when it communicates!

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 2018 will be our 16th year - and it will be bigger and better than ever!
