Atlanta Fair, at old Turner Field, is the city’s only urban fair!
Welcome back to the fair! The Atlanta Fair returns to Old Turner Field for its annual fall run.
Of course, we’ll keep you updated with all the ride deals and reduced admission days — and we hope to host another ticket giveaway while the fair is in town.
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 four weeks!
It is scheduled to run from Friday, October 6th thru Sunday, November 5th, 2023
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.
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 this year’s Atlanta Fair.

NEW! Approved clear bag policy
According to the Atlanta Fair policies web page, only certain types of clear bags will be allowed, for enhanced security at the fair.
The new policy seems surprisingly restrictive, and limits you to to one of the following:
♦ Clear plastic purses, tote bags, etc. that are no larger than 12″ x 12″ x 6″
♦ 1-gallon clear plastic freezer bag
♦ small clutch purse up to 4.5″ x 6.5″ (apparently doesn’t need to be clear?)
If you need to bring a diaper bag or a medically necessary item, you’ll go through an inspection and your item will be tagged to let security know you’ve been cleared.
You can not bring a clear backpack or clear oversized tote.
No tinted or patterned plastic bags will be allowed.
