Petitioning at the Sweet Onion Festival - Glennville

Petitioning at the Sweet Onion Festival - Glennville

Glennville’s biggest annual event, the Glennville Sweet Onion Festival, is now in its 48th year of events, and sunny skies have just about shone upon every one. The festive day on the second Saturday of each May celebrates the harvesting of the famous Vidalia sweet onion crop. The day begins with a sweet onion run and walk and a downtown parade. After the parade we have an array of arts and crafts, delightful entertainment, children's rides and games, delectable food (that includes fried sweet onion rings and blooming onions). The event draws over 6,000 people each year.

Tattnall County, of which the community of Glennville is the largest, grows more Vidalia Sweet Onions than any of the other official Georgia Department of Agriculture Vidalia Sweet Onion growing counties, contributing approximately half of the entire state crop each year.

Come out and sign a petition to get Bobby on the ballot!
