Festival

A Sweet Celebration

Each spring, food lovers across the nation anticipate the harvest of Georgia’s Official State Vegetable, the  famous Vidalia® Onion. The Vidalia community celebrates the occasion with a four-day festival that’s packed with fun-filled activities that offer something for everyone. The Vidalia Onion Festival has been featured on The Food Network and recognized as one of the Five Don’t-Miss Festivals Across the U.S. by MSNBC and a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event. Join us for a sweet time in Vidalia!
