The Town of Lula (pronounced by locals as “LOO-lerr”) hosts the Second Annual Lula Fall Festival on Saturday, September 26, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This celebration of the arts and culture of Northeast Georgia will be held in the revitalized downtown area near the train depot — and the dandy splash park for kids — to showcase the area’s accomplished potters, craftsfolks and folk artists.

Mark Lusink and local artist Larry Ledford designed the community mural project with the theme “Pottery in Lula” to celebrate the town’s history of accomplished potters.

Chris Lusink with the Lula Belton Historical Society says, “We are so proud of the changes and improvements being made here in our community and the wealth of talent in Northeast Georgia, so we’re bringing it all together in one place at the end of September for the public.”

Artists will offer demonstrations, in addition to musical entertainment and children’s activities.  The Lula Belton Historical Society will sell barbecue plates.

“We want to make this year’s festival twice as large as last year’s,” Lusink said. “With the number of talented potters, folk artists and craftspeople, our goal is to make Lula the Pottery and Folk Center of Northeast Georgia.”
