Our 2022 Georgia National Fair Draft Horse Show forms are currently being finalized, please check back soon!
The Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter currently occupies nearly 1,100 acres. The Agricenter contains 10 acres of exhibition space with 5 arenas, exhibit halls, two 480-stall horse barns, 4 ponds, a carnival midway, and parking for 13,000 vehicles. In addition to the National Fair, hundreds of events are held annually at the facility. The Fairgrounds offers free on-site parking daily, easy access off Interstate-75, and is in close proximity to hotels, restaurants and other area attractions.
This arena is a completely indoor, climate-controlled atmosphere with a 250′ x 125′ show ring, roll-up doors for loading and unloading, restrooms, and wireless internet. For our show, we will be using Practice Ring #2, which is connected to Perdue Arena via covered walkway. Exhibitors will be stalled in Barn #2, which is adjacent to Perdue Arena.
