Every day is a sweet day in Vidalia, but this week is even sweeter, as we celebrate the beginning of the harvest of Vidalia Onions. The Vidalia Onion Festival kicked off last night with the annual Local Entertainment and Movie Under the Stars, but more fun is to come throughout the week!
This year, the downtown area will be the central location for most of the festival events, including the street dance, nightly concerts, Braves Country Road Trip, and Sweet Onion Rings and Things. Also, student art will fill the downtown sidewalks from the Annual Chalk Walk, the Historic Pal Theatre will show the facility’s documentary, and businesses will welcome patrons to enjoy some “Sweet Shopping” throughout the weekend.
Meanwhile, the annual Arts & Crafts Show will be held at the traditional location on Airport Road, and the carnival will be in the adjacent lot. The Vidalia Community Center will host the annual Vidalia Onion Recipe Contest and Public Tasting, while the Sweet Onion Showdown will be at the Toombs County Ag Complex on Quint Shrine Road in Lyons, and the Tales From The Altamaha will be performed at the Blue Marquee, located at 121 N. State Street in Lyons.
