Fun in Hogansville Throughout the Year
Historic Downtown Hogansville
Classic small town shopping and dining
Main Street is alive and well in Hogansville! At the intersection of highways 54 and 29, our beautiful downtown is home to historic sites such as the art deco Royal Theater, the amazing Grand Hotel, the historic train depot, and the nearby amphitheater and Tower Trail. These are reason alone to visit, but there is plenty of shopping, dining, and other business you can do downtown. Visitors enjoy the antique shops, bookstore, restaurants, consignment clothing and destination auctions at Van Byars & Son. There is plenty for local residents too, including two banks, two drugstores, the best post office you ever visited, dry cleaning and laundry, housewares and variety stores, grocery stores, restaurants, and financial/insurance services. Come see us!
I-85 Exit 28 Gas, Food, Lodging
Remember Hogansville on your travels
For a small community, Hogansville is fortunate to have two commercial centers. For many people, their first encounter with the fine people and businesses of Hogansville is at I-85 Exit 28. You will find multiple options for gas, food, and lodging. From McDonald’s to Wendy’s to Arby’s to Subway–to Roger’s BBQ, Nachos Mexican, Waffle House, or The Woodyard Grill–we have your drive-thru and sit-down eating options covered. Two motels to choose from, both locally owned and operated (Woodstream Inn and Garden Inn). Many road warriors know the secret that the Hogansville exit is a great place to stop for a night of clean, affordable rest. People also drive in from miles around for the Ingles grocery store, which also features a deli cafe and salad bar for dining in or taking out.
Hogansville Uniques & Antiques Festival
A spring festival, 3rd weekend in May
Established in 2011, the two-day Spring Festival is held annually on the third Saturday-Sunday in May. The shops and restaurants of Hogansville have their doors wide open, and the festival features a variety of vendor booths, featuring antiques, garden decor, and unique gifts. Don’t miss the food court, live music stage, and kids play area. Parking is free, admission is free, live entertainment is free! It says something about what a great place Hogansville is that we are fortunate to have not one but two groups of volunteers working hard to bring the world to Hogansville for a fabulous weekend festival. Come see us in both the spring and fall!
Hogansville Hummingbird Festival
A fall festival, 3rd weekend in October
Established in 1998, the Hogansville Hummingbird Festival is held annually on the third weekend in October. Like the Spring Festival, the centerpiece of the Hummingbird Festival is the Saturday-Sunday outdoor event in downtown Hogansville. The shops and restaurants are ready for visitors, and the downtown is filled with arts & craft vendors, food court, live music stages, and kids play area. Parking and admission are free. In addition to the main weekend, the Hogansville Charitable Trust puts on a season of events, including golf and poker tournaments, a 5K run, a Miss Hummingbird Festival pageant (part of the Miss America program), and a banquet with dancing and a silent auction, featuring items donated by area businesses and residents.
Tower Trail & Amphitheater
A unique way to see historic Hogansville
Adjacent to downtown Hogansville and Hogansville Elementary, our beautiful amphitheater was built by the Depression-era Youth Conservation Corps. Perfect for concerts, plays, and other events, the amphitheater is available for rent year round. Right next door is the trail head of the Tower Trail, anchored by a water tower built in 1916. The tower was used at one time by Hines Cannery, and was also Hogansville’s first water system. The trail connects with Oak St and the historic downtown. Local fundraisers have raised seed money for grant funding from the GA Recreational Trail Grant and the Dept of Natural Resources. At the time of this writing, two future phases are planned, including lengthening the trail and building an interpretive center and restrooms near the Tower itself.
Hogansville Golf Club
9 holes of golf for locals and visitors
When you are in Hogansville, a great game of golf is always just up the road! Enjoy a quiet morning on the course, or rent out all nine holes for a special event. Carts are available for rent but this is also a nice walking course. Locally owned and operated. Annual memberships available. Generous hosts of the annual charity golf tournament and consistent boosters for local sports alumni. The Hogansville Golf Club is a great option for your next corporate outing or fundraiser. The staff can also help you put on your very own golf tournament, whether as a charity fundraiser or just for fun. The shorter length of nine holes of golf on an intimate course is great for fundraisers and group outings. 115 American Legion Rd, Hogansville, GA 30230. 706-637-4538
Halloween Trunk N’ Treat
Fun and safe trick-or-treating
Every year, the community comes together to create this unique, fun, and safe alternative to door-to-door trick-or-treating. Local families and organizations decorate their cars and trucks, and children can walk through a gauntlet of Halloween scenes, collecting candy and other treats along the way. The Hogansville Trunk N Treat event is held on the day of Halloween. Setup starts at 5:00pm. Candy starts at 6:00pm.
House of Horrors
Annual haunted house fundraiser
This annual community fundraiser is not to be missed. The back of the Royal Theater is transformed into a terrifying maze of scary scenes and monstrous ghouls lurking around every corner. The Hogansville haunted house is a great option for people near Newnan, LaGrange, and Columbus. Come early to shop and have dinner. Opening night is always the Saturday of the Hummingbird Festival, continuing through Halloween (check website for dates).
Christmas Tree Lighting and Santa
Coincides with the Christmas Parade
Don’t miss Christmas in Hogansville! Every year features a Christmas tree lighting in Calvin Hipp Memorial Park, with photo opportunities with Santa. The Christmas tree is decorated with ornaments from the Pilot Club’s annual Empty Stocking fundraiser. The tree lighting and Santa photos coincides with the Christmas Parade. Downtown Hogansville is always nicely decorated every holiday season, thanks to the hard work of our city employees and local businesses and residents who volunteer their time and materials.
Hogansville Christmas Parade
An annual tradition
The annual Christmas parade is a tradition in Hogansville going back many years. Each year residents and businesses from Hogansville and nearby communities come together for a classic nighttime parade down Main St. The Callaway Cavaliers Marching Band always comes out in support, and of course Santa plays a special role (including pictures in Calvin Hipp Park after the parade!). Special thanks are due to the tireless volunteers who have made this event possible over the years.
