Thank You Sponsors and Volunteers

The Hummingbird Festival is a 100% volunteer-driven, community-supported fundraiser for the Hogansville Charitable Trust, a registered non-profit entity that supports Hogansville community improvement projects and programs. As you can see on our Festival Sponsors Page, we are proud to have the support of many businesses, organizations, and individuals, large and small.

The volunteer efforts of dozens of people from the Hogansville community, combined with the funds raised throughout the festival season, combine to create real leverage for the Hogansville Charitible Trust to do good for the City of Friendly People.

We always need volunteers! For jobs small, medium, and larg--before, during, and after the festival. Something as simple as helping out in the food court for a couple hours or driving the parking shuttle bus can make a big difference. For more information call Mary Stewart at 706-333-2520.

Information for Vendors

The Hummingbird Festival takes pride in having a well balanced, diverse, and high quality group of vendors offering quality goods that cannot be found just anywhere. Many vendors choose to come back year after year, but we are always interested in meeting new people. Please visit our Hogansville Hummingbird Festival vendor information page. Be sure to also find us and Like us on Facebook. We try to cross-link on Facebook to as many vendors as we can during the lead-up to the festival.

Benefits of the Hummingbird Festival

The Hogansville Hummingbird Festival, 2018 being its 21st year, is the principal fund-raising vehicle for the Hogansville Charitable Trust, a 501(c) 3 Georgia non-profit corporation whose stated purpose is the renovation, preservation and improvement of historic and municipal properties in and around the City of Hogansville, Georgia.

The Festival has raised in excess of $325,000 for this purpose. However, by using these dollars primarily as matching funds for Federal, State and other grants, the money has been leveraged into more than $3,000,000 in improvements for the City.

The projects have included renovations of the historic Royal Theater, now used as Hogansville’s City Hall, three phases of StreetScapes and construction of the Tower Trail which includes a walking trail from Hogansville Elementary School, by the historic Water Tower, and ending on Oak Street by the City’s now retired water treatment plant, and an outdoor classroom. In 2016, the Charitable Trust purchased land in the center of downtown, which has since been donated to the city and named Askew Park. This preserves greenspace for our beautiful historic downtown.

In addition, the Festival has donated to such charities as the American Red Cross’ Katrina Relief Fund, the Shriners Hospital, the Boys and Girls Clubs of West Georgia, “Breast Friends for Life,” a Troup County support group for breast cancer patients, Hogansville’s GED program, and “God’s Bread Basket,” Hogansville’s Food Bank.
