& Entry Application

"Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten yourself into!" Oliver
Hardy would have most likely said about the Festival honoring him.
Harlem, a small town west of Augusta, is the birthplace of Oliver
Hardy, the larger side of Laurel and Hardy, that most famous comedy
duo that made successful comedy films for decades.

The festival which was started in 1988, features over 350 craft
booths filled with an unusual assortment of crafts people, food
vendors and novelty vendors. There is also a Look-A-Like contest,
which has a lot of prominent citizens as contestants.

Sons of the Desert Reception
Held the Friday night before the Oliver Hardy Festival. This
reception is in honor of all of our Sons Of the Desert visitors,
they come from all over the World to attend the Festival.
