The birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., nationally commemorated on the third Monday of January each year, has become a day of celebration and volunteer work in the state. Georgia Day, February 12, is a legal holiday in the state. It marks the anniversary of the founding of Savannah in 1733. The birthdays of Robert E. Lee (January 19) and Jefferson Davis (June 3) are also legal holidays. One of the most famous U.S. golf events, the Masters invitational tournament, is held at the Augusta National Golf Course every April. Other spring events include Riverfest Weekend in Columbus, in April, and the Andersonville Historic Fair, in May.

July Polk


Each July Polk County organizes the Homespun Festival, while the Barnesville Buggy Days are held each September. Helen, an alpine-village re-creation, celebrates Oktoberfest with German food and music, while the barbecue is honored each October at the Big Pig Jig in Vienna. The Georgia National Fair is held in Perry in October.

Georgia is home to several professional sports teams, including the Atlanta Falcons (football), the Atlanta Braves (baseball), and the Atlanta Hawks (basketball). Atlanta also hosted the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Some of the events were held in the new Olympic Stadium, which is now the home of the Atlanta Braves.
