Riceboro Georgia

The Riceboro Rice Festival is an annual celebration held the first and second weekends of November each year honoring rice farming, which was a major economic activity in the coastal region of Liberty County in the City of Riceboro, Georgia. The 1st Rice Festival was held in downtown Riceboro in 2007. The Festival also commemorates the legacy of the people who lived in the coastal areas of the United States. These people were called Gullah Geechee and have influenced the coastal areas of North Carolina to northern Florida with their culture, through music, language, and food. The Festival includes: Miss Liberty County Rice Festival Pageant, the Gospel Fest, the Homecoming Dance and Social, the Rice Festival Parade, the Rice Festival Cook Off, and the Festival of Events. There are many historical exhibits and demonstrations, with local entertainment, and giveaways planned as part of the celebration.
