The Cotton Pickin' Fair is a unique festival created by the Gay Family and held continuously since 1972 on the Gay Family Farmstead in Gay, GA and held on the first weekend in May and October. Over 300 artisans from all over the country will gather on our grounds, providing an exciting range of art, antique, and craft exhibits. Patrons enjoy fine art, pottery, weaving, basket making, blacksmithing, sculpture, wood working, folk art, jewelry, furniture, and gourmet food. A grand variety of delicious southern food prepared on site benefits local nonprofit organizations and charities. Bring your appetite and join us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For a festival preview or directions, visit or
