So... Who was Moina Michael and what is the Good Hope Poppy Festival? The Good Hope Poppy Festival provides a fun fall day to citizens and neighboring counties in downtown Good Hope, Georgia. Established in 2013, the name was given in 2015 to honor the Poppy Lady, Moina Michael, born in Good Hope in 1869. Moina MIchael used the red corn poppy as a symbol to honor fallen troops in WWI. The tradition continues today to honor fallen servicemen worldwide.

The bike rides will generate support for our local military veterans.

Come for the bike ride and stay for the Festival! We're offering...

  • Over 50 great and diverse vendors.
  • Listen to live bands throughout the day.
  • Eat tasty food prepared by local cooks.
  • Ride old-fashioned hayride.
  • Bike in family fun or experienced rides.
  • Meet new friends and greet old-timers
