The Georgia History Festival is the signature K-12 educational program of the Georgia Historical Society, reaching hundreds of thousands of students statewide. Beginning with the new school year in September, a variety of public programs, exhibits, events, and educational resources bring history to life for students of all ages and encourage Georgians to explore the richness and diversity of our state’s past. In addition to new online and in-person programming, the Festival includes popular annual events like the Colonial Faire and Muster living-history program held at Wormsloe State Historic Site, Savannah’s Georgia Day Parade, and the elegant Trustees Gala.
Each year, GHS selects a person or topic significant in Georgia’s history as the focus of our educational programs and resources. The 2021-2022 focus of study will be, “From Marshes to Mountains, Georgia’s Changing Landscape: Geography, History, and Community.”
