Community Events
We are proud to live and work in the Barnesville / Lamar County area. Barnesville is a wonderful place to raise a family, and be a part of the local community. We’re certainly proud of some of the wonderful things that Barnesville has to offer. Please, check out some of our local events, and come celebrate, and have a good time with us!

BBQ & Blues Festival
In April of each year, Barnesville holds it’s annual BBQ & Blues Festival, which is a sanctioned event of the Florida BBQ Association. The time of year is perfect as we start to enjoy the Spring, with warm weather ushering in the flowers as they start to bloom. What better time to get together and enjoy some of the best BBQ in Georgia, and mix it together with some of the best local and national Blues talent giving us some great music to provide for a great time! 

Buggy Days Festival
Go ahead and mark your calendars, because on the 3rd full weekend of each and every September, Barnesville puts together the annual Buggy Days Festival. Buggy Days is Barnesville’s signature event, which has been listed over and over again as one of Southern Living’s Must See Events. It features things such as Arts & Crafts Vendors, a Food Court, and Children’s Play Area, just to name of few. There are also coordinating events, such as a Car Show, the Buggy Days Parade (where you can typically find some of Williams Funeral Home’s Antique Buggies), and if you can stick around for Saturday night, join us for the Greased Pig Chase, and some outstanding fireworks!
