The Rockdale County UGA Cooperative Extension Office will host the first Rockdale County Food and Science Festival on Saturday, Sept. 14, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Pine Street Elementary School, 500 Sigman Road, Conyers.

The free event will showcase all three program areas of UGA Cooperative Extension: Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR), Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS), and 4-H. The goal is to highlight the relationship between food production and consumption and the impact it has on the body and mind in a fun festival-style event.

Attendees will be able to navigate a path through more than 15 different booths with games, challenges and activities. In addition to the booths, there will be special presentations given throughout the day to engage attendees, as well as a photo booth, science demonstrations and more.

Eventbrite ticketholders will receive guaranteed reservations for fresh vegetables to take home at the completion of their visit. Non-ticketholders may also receive free produce on a first-come, first serve basis, while supplies last.
