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 2016 will be our 14th year - and it will be bigger and better than ever!

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.
