Byromville, Georgia
Turkey Creek Festival

May 7, 2016
Join us as we celebrate Byromville at the annual
Early in 1997, then Police Chief Thomas L. Stone suggested the idea of a festival to celebrate all the great things about small town living in Byromville, thus we planned and enjoyed our first festival.  It was a two-day event on July 4 and 5, and we called it the Byromville July Jubilee.  We had a lot of fun, but decided one day of fun was about all we could handle.  The next three years the one-day festival was held on the Saturday closest to July 4.  We continued to have a lot of fun but decided we might have more fun when it was not so hot, therefore, the festival was moved to the first Saturday in May and renamed the Turkey Creek Festival after Turkey Creek which runs just outside Byromville's city limits.
