Mule Camp Market

October 7, 2016, 10:00am - October 9, 2016, 4:00pm

Downtown Gainesville

Mule Camp Market began years back as a farmer’s curb market near the downtown square, organized by James Mathis, Sr. of Home Federal Bank. This market evolved into the Corn Tassel Festival, which was a fall festival with local craft exhibitors. About 1993, the Gainesville Jaycees began running the festival and changed the name to Mule Camp Market. In the short period of time since then the Jaycees have brought the Market from a local event to a regional fall festival with crowds of 75,000 for the annual 3-day weekend held the second weekend in October every year. The Jaycees also sponsor a carnival that is held in conjunction with Mule Camp every year. With craft vendors from all parts of the U.S., and top quality country and Blue Grass entertainment, the Jaycees have turned the Market into the single largest annual event hosted in Hall County. The City of Gainesville or Mule Camp Springs as it was once known, hosts this rich Appalachian festival at the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. This festival showcases various mountain arts and crafts. The family can enjoy mule rides, live music, and great food, while the kids enjoy the petting zoo and many other activities. The City of Gainesville and Hall County welcomed the world in 1996 as a host of the Centennial Olympic Games. Lake Lanier was the site of the Kayak and Rowing events, and our area became known as the "Hospitality Capital of the World". Once again, the community and the Gainesville Jaycees wish to show you our hospitality by inviting you to the 2015 Mule Camp Market Festival on the Downtown Square in Gainesville.
