The Athens Grease Festival is held each year on the Square in downtown Athens.
City residents embrace Southerner's love of fried foods and the Greek origin of the towns name by hosting the Athens Grease Festival each year. They acknowledge that healthy eating is important but have set aside a day for your taste buds to enjoy battered, dipped and fried culinary creations.
Mark your calendars to attend this event and discover what you love about the south.
