2021 Georgia History Festival Trustees Gala

Saturday, Jun 5, 2021

Join the Office of the Governor and the Georgia Historical Society as we induct the 2021 Georgia Trustees, David Abney and Juanita Baranco, at the Trustees Gala on June 5, 2021.

With ongoing concerns about holding large in-person events this spring, GHS has made the decision to transition the annual Trustees Gala to a televised, broadcast event. We are pleased and excited to announce that the 2021 Trustees Gala will be televised with the assistance of various statewide broadcast partners. The program will air on Saturday, June 5, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. in Atlanta (PBA Atlanta) and Savannah (WTOC). It will also be broadcast at 7:00 p.m. in Columbus (WRBL) and Augusta (WJBF). It will also be available post-broadcast on various platforms including georgiahistory.com and the GHS YouTube channel. Please follow us here, on social media, and in Headlines to find out how you can be a part of the 2021 Trustees Gala featuring Governor Brian Kemp’s induction of David Abney and Juanita Baranco as the newest Georgia Trustees.

The Trustees Gala is the Georgia Historical Society’s premier annual event and the culmination of the Georgia History Festival. Each year, this elegant and much-anticipated evening draws top local, state, and national leaders to honor and pay tribute to the best the State of Georgia has produced.
