    The Camellia City Festival is Saturday, October 22, 2022 beginning at 10 am until 5 pm in Downtown Thomson.  McDuffie County community volunteers are proud to organize this FREE family-friendly event. We anticipate over 100 vendors and over 3,000 attendees!

    The Thomson-McDuffie Government Complex grounds will host a variety of merchants, community organizations, local businesses, crafters, artists, health & wellness services, jewelry, and more.

    The Thomson Family YMCA will host a 5K race starting at 9 am to kick off this event.  Runners and walkers will receive a swag bag with a t-shirt to commemorate the occasion.  Winners of the 5K will be announced at the festival.  To register for the race, contact the Thomson Family YMCA at (706) 595-5615.

    Come with an appetite as the Camellia City Festival has a variety of culinary delights, along with live music and entertainment provided throughout the day. Bring your chairs or blankets to sit on the lawn to watch the shows.

    “The Camellia City Festival is the perfect place for people new and not-so-new to the area to discover the amazing things our community has to offer,” Debbie Jones, executive director of the Thomson-McDuffie Chamber of Commerce. “We are very fortunate to have a dedicated team of volunteers to help showcase the best of our community.”
