September Saturdays Festival
Festival T-shirt Logo
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 2019 will be our 17th year - and it will be bigger and better than ever!
11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Festival
September 21st Heroes Day + Touch-a-Truck Experience will feature equipment and vehicles from military, law enforcement, public safety, and community service agencies in addition to featuring 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.
September 28th Family Day + Fun & Games Festival will 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 festival will feature representatives from area industries and businesses that could have jobs available!
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.
