Top Events for Labor Day Weekend

September 1, 2023

Labor Day is a time to appreciate the contributions of the working class and to honor how hard they work to help our country grow and prosper. It is celebrated each year on the first Monday in September and is a national federal holiday in the United States and Canada, which means most people have the day off of work. And, since it always falls on a Monday, it means most people get to celebrate with a three-day weekend!

Below are several local ideas for making the most of your Labor Day weekend:

Camping & Outdoor Events at a Georgia State Park.  Camping at a Georgia State Park is an exciting way to enjoy the great outdoors.  Whether you like to “rough it” or explore the outdoors in comfort, Georgia State Parks have an option for you.  They offer tent, trailer, cottage, cabin, inn and yurt camping.  Not into camping?  Check out Cool Pool End-of-Summer Splash or️ Labor Day Weekend Hike at FDR State Park.

Sunrise on the Square Road Race 5K. The Sunrise on the Square Labor Day Road Race is a local favorite, and has been held annually in Downtown Newnan on the Saturday before Labor Day for over 40 years!  This race will benefit the Newnan/Coweta Boys & Girls Club.

Labor Day 5K at The Avenue. The Avenue in Peachtree City will also have a Labor Day run to benefit Midwest Food Bank.  Grab your two and four-legged friends and join us!
