Our love affair with Harness racing began in 1894. Since that time, several world champions have been trained on Hawkinsville tracks. No where else in the state can you see these young horses do what they do best, go FAST! Enjoy this delightful experience in our picturesque southern town on the Ocmulgee River. Nourish your soul with great food, nostalgic fun, beautiful landscapes and the Southern-Fried feeling that will make you feel like you are "coming home".

For our Hawkinsville Harness Festival we will have plenty of family fun to go around. This is a 2 day festival taking place in the beginning of April. We will have arts & crafts, music, food, kid & family friendly games and exhibits, plus so much more! You do not want to miss the Luke Martin band who will be performing and closing out the festival on Saturday night along with an amazing fire works display.
