Each year, thousands of people gather in Pelham to experience the best in local food, photography, arts and crafts, and educational vendors. The Wildlife Festival was originally named the “Gold Leaf Festival” as an ode to one of the largest agriculturally produced crops in our region–tobacco. The name was changed to the Wildlife Festival and that’s what it has remained for over 20 years.
Although visitors come for the festival, they also enjoy touring our local downtown area and the shops located within our historic district. Many of our local merchants are open throughout the day of the festival and offer unique, quality items. The store owners offer a taste of Southern hospitality and true customer service.
The Wildlife Festival 5K and Fun Run is also a wonderful attraction for Pelham. Runners from all over Georgia, Florida, and Alabama travel to Pelham for the Wildlife Festival 5K and Fun Run.
