Feeding the Mind and Body at Georgia National Fair for 2019

The mind and the body need to be satiated in different ways. For Georgians across the state, a trip to the Georgia National Fair can handle both.

Upon entering the gates of the fairgrounds, the smells of roasted meats and sweet treats assault the senses. From different corners of the fair come the cries of barkers, try your hand at the ring toss or pierce a balloon to take home a giant prize. When you need a break, there are performers everywhere to amaze and amuse.

It’s all food and games, all the time.


For the sixth time, students from Grady College’s Advanced Photojournalism course spent an entire day, from the opening of the gates at 8 a.m. to the fireworks display 15 hours later, scouring the Georgia National Fairgrounds for the moments that show what the fair means to the attendees. Working with nine coaches who gave them feedback throughout the day, the students made more than 40,000 photos and walked, on average, 10 miles each.
