Thanks for a great 2022 Festival!
What a whirlwind event, pun definitely intended, we had at the 26th annual Fire Ant Festival. The winds were high, the food was delightfully delicious, and the fun was at peak levels.
Small-town Ashburn, Georgia, welcomed an estimated 15,000 visitors, and despite our tagline, we even welcomed a vendor named Jolene! But still no invite was sent to ants themselves (thankfully).
Activities included the fire ant calling contest, the giant fire ant maze, a carnival, 100+ arts and crafts, best fireworks in South Georgia, local entertainment, a 5K run and 1-mile fun run, BBQ cook-off, and so much more!
Even Dolly Parton herself came to the festival – well kinda. She sure looked like Dolly. 😉
Whether you were a vendor or a visitor, we are thankful for you for coming to our little South Georgia festival as we celebrated Dolly Part-ANT!
Just know, we are thankful for you, for coming to our event and making the festival as special as possible.
