Description

The October 5-6, 2013, Andersonville Historic Fair is sponsored by The Andersonville Guild and Town Council to raise funds for historic preservation and to attract tourists to the area.

On the first full weekend in October, History comes alive in Andersonville. Georgia.

Hundreds of Civil War re en-actors set up camps and stage two realistic mock battles, the first at 3pm Saturday and the second at 2 pm Sunday.

Sutlers selling Civil War uniforms and accouterments, guns, swords, flags and Civil War era civilian clothing add color and interest as do craftsmen such as gunsmiths, blacksmiths, basket makers, quilters, weavers, and artists of all kinds. Gates open at 10 am both days. The first big activity is the parade on the main street, Saturday at 11 a.m. Special entertainment includes performances by The Southern Gunslingers, puppet shows, line dancing, clogging, bluegrass band performances, and gospel singing.

Admission is $4 for Adults, $1.50 for children 12 and under. No aggressive dogs allowed. Dogs must be under 25 pounds and leashed.
