& Entry Application
"Here's another fine 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
