Who We Are
Consider this – no traffic jams, easy access, affordable accommodations, a relaxing retreat, modern facilities, and a slower pace. Just add in a soulful helping of Southern hospitality and that’s what we are all about in Perry. Long recognized as the crossroads of Georgia, our city has a tradition of delivering a warm and gracious welcome to visitors dating back more than a century, all the way back to when the city was a major North – South stagecoach stop.
Perry is home to the award-winning Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter. This first-class facility is designed for meetings, trade shows, livestock events, horse shows, fairs, RV rallies, concerts, sporting events and more.
But there’s more to Perry than the fairgrounds. Downtown Perry is a must see! The renovated downtown area is a charming village with specialty shops and a down-south, restful atmosphere. A perfect place for a stroll; enjoy the year-round flowers with benches and shop windows designed to lure you inside where any shop owner will be glad to tell you the story of Perry’s “rebirth.” Shopping in historic Downtown Perry is a definite treat for locals and travelers alike.
In Perry, we are the home of Southern charm and hospitality, the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter, the landmark New Perry Hotel and former US Senator Sam Nunn. All that is missing is you! Please come see us soon.
