The Perfect Fall Football Weekend in Athens...

Fall is one of our favorite times of the year in Athens. Offering everything from football games to fall festivals, Athens is the perfect fall weekend getaway. After recently being named the “Best Town in College Football” by Athlon Sports, Athens was featured by Explore Georgia, and we are excited to be teaming up with them again for this special UGA Homecoming takeover. 



The Rundown

 The takeover will last all weekend starting with the Redcoat Exhibit at the UGA Special Collections Library. The UGA Homecoming Parade will also be featured on Friday night taking place in the heart of downtown Athens.

On Saturday, we will be visiting tailgates, the Dawg Walk, and other pre-game festivities. Throughout the game, we will be posting from the sidelines, so you won’t miss any of the action. We are especially excited to share the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen live from the field. After the game, we will hopefully be sharing post-game celebrations after a Dawg win!

On Sunday, we will be featuring some of our favorite brunch spots in Athens, along with some scenic views from the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.  

We are excited to share these events with everyone, and we hope you will join us! Follow @exploregeorgia on Instagram to watch a fall football weekend in Athens unfold.
