Each spring, Vidalia anticipates the harvest of Georgia's Official State Vegetable, the internationally famous Vidalia Sweet Onion. The Vidalia Onion Festival has been featured on The Food Network and recognized as one of the "Five Don't-Miss Festivals Across the U.S." by MSNBC.

Pre-festival activities begin with a youth boys' baseball tournament, the Miss Vidalia Onion Pageant, Battle of the Bands, and much more. A children's parade, culinary extravaganza, movie under the stars, and opening ceremonies kick off the weekend's activities on Thursday, April 24, 2014. Other events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday include the Golden Onion Professional Cooking Competition, onion walk/run, recipe contest and public tasting, an airshow, concerts, carnival, arts and crafts festival, downtown sidewalk sale, and an onion eating contest. 

This is only a taste! You'll have to come to Vidalia to experience the "whole onion."
