Atlanta Fair 2022 opens in early March and runs for 5 weeks in downtown Atlanta
Welcome back to the fair! The Atlanta Fair returns right on time in 2022, for its usual spring run. Of course, we’ll keep you updated with all the ride deals and reduced admission days — and we’ll give away a family 4-pack of tickets while the fair is town (details below!)
This is Georgia’s only urban fair, taking place at the Old Turner Field’s Gray Lot (across from the GA Panthers’ stadium). If you need an address for your GPS, you can use 688 Central Ave SW, Atlanta, GA 30315
The Atlanta Fair is in town a full five weeks!
It is scheduled to run from Friday, March 4th to Sunday, April 10th in 2022.
You’ll find plenty of exciting rides and your favorite carnival cuisine — from cotton candy and funnel cakes to Polish Sausage with peppers and onions.
New at the 2022 Atlanta Fair is The Expedition — a brand-new, speedy thrill ride!
In previous years, there has been nightly entertainment, like concerts, dance troupes, and a Houdini-style escape artist. We’ll update when that info becomes available for Atlanta Fair 2022.

Our 2022 Atlanta Fair ticket giveaway
We have a four-pack of tickets to give away to one lucky family!
Each ticket is good for general admission at the gate, PLUS can be redeemed for an unlimited ride wristband at the office.
The tickets do NOT include parking — you’re on your own for that.
The tickets can be used on any day of the fair, but we’ll be mailing them to you, so it will take a couple of days for you to receive them. Fortunately, the fair runs through Sunday, April 10, 2022, so you’ll have plenty to use the tickets if you win.
