The 24th annual Jackson Butts County Fine Arts Festival, sponsored by the Jackson Butts County Council for the Arts, was a huge success, drawing what some observers feel is the largest crowd ever for the festival, and getting raves from the artists who loved the location around the historic Butts County Courthouse. Artists are came from as far away as Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina for the festival.
