Benefits of the Hummingbird Festival

The Hogansville Hummingbird Festival, 2019 being its 22nd 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 2018, the Trust made another large purchase for the benefit of the city, this time the PNC Bank building, which is being donated to the City of Hogansville with the intent of using it as a new City Hall.

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.

2019 Festival Art!

Artist Leslie Purcell

Leslie Purcell

Winner of the 2019 Festival Art Contest

The Hogansville Hummingbird Festival committee has selected the artwork to represent this fall's Hummingbird Festival. Leslie Purcell's whimsical painting of two colorful hummingbirds on a lush green background was the winning entry in a crowded field of applicants.

"We were thrilled to have 39 entries this year," said Mary Stewart of the Festival committee. "A number of entries came from Chris Hagebak’s art classes." Leslie has been taking weekly art classes for the past two years at Hagebak's 809 Gallery of Art in LaGrange. One of their class assignments this spring was to submit a painting for the Hummingbird Festival competition. Each of the five students in Leslie's class submitted a painting, as did many other students in Hagebak's other classes.

Leslie will be a freshman at LaGrange High School this fall. Her older sister, who is a writer, inspired Leslie's interest in art three years ago. Animation and cartoon art caught Leslie's fancy, and her hummingbird painting reflects that style. Leslie plans to keep developing her style and learning new techniques, and she hopes to make art her career, possibly in graphic design.

The winning art each year is used in the designs for the Festival T-shirt, poster, and guidebook. You can view the resulting 2019 Hummingbird Festival poster in the Poster Gallery. Leslie Purcell’s original framed painting will hang in City Hall downtown, along with the works of art of previous Festival artists.
