Old_Fashioned_4th-Wrightsville-2

For many years Wrightsville and Johnson County have commemorated our nation’s founding with a much anticipated, yearly Old Fashioned Fourth of July Festival.  The celebration began with the county’s participation in the Bi-Centennial Celebration in 1976 and has continued yearly with the exception of one year.  Come join our celebration of this great nation’s founding!  All events this year will take place on Saturday, July 4th with old fashioned events on the courthouse square, a parade, food, games, arts & crafts, 5K/10K Firecracker Road Races, a one mile Fun Run, a street dance and more.  A worship and veterans’ service will be held on Wednesday, July 7th at Mt. Olive Church of the Nazarene: 7:00 pm with guest speaker the Rev. Chris Mitchell. The theme of the worship service is God and Country.  If you are looking for small town fun with an emphasis on family – visit the City of Wrightsville, Johnson County, Georgia, on July 4th and participate in our community’s annual Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration.
