Event Information

Brooks County Skillet Festival
An Annual Traditional Since 2011



The Brooks County Skillet Festival is hosted each year on the third Saturday in October. The Festival is organized and planned each year by Destination Brooks, a group of dedicated volunteers that love supporting the Brooks County community. The Skillet Festival is also backed by the local Chamber of Commerce, the City of Quitman, Brooks County, and the State of Georgia making it a truly involved community event. The event started in 2011 as a community event to draw visitors into Quitman not only to spent a Saturday morning checking out local vendors and cuisine, but to encourage folks to stop and shop our local downtown stores. Over the years, the event has grown and added different events, including the Cast Iron 5k, hosted by the Boys and Girls Club, the Quilt Show, and most recently, war re-enactments and exhibits.

The Brooks County Courthouse is located at 100 Screven Street, Quitman, Georgia 31643.

There’s nothing like being wrapped in an intricately crafted quilt that was seemingly designed to tell a story. This year, the annual Brooks County Skillet Festival will proudly host the Patchwork Harvest Quilt Show to showcase unique quilts.

Brought to you by the Boys & Girls Club of Valdosta! The race, to benefit the Boys & Girls Club activities in Brooks County, will be held on the morning of the festival and will serves as a kick-off the day’s festivities for the annual Brooks County Skillet Festival. The race will begin and end at Citizens National Bank, adjacent to the Brooks County Courthouse and award ceremonies will follow at 9 a.m. The 5k road race has become a favorite among local runners. Racers will enjoy a scenic course meandering through Quitman's historic district while being cheered on by the clanging of skillets!
