"We Serve"

Welcome to Calvary Lions Mule Day 

Sponsored by The  Lions Club of Calvary Georgia 

Official Site of the Calvary Lions Club Mule Day Festival!

Stay tuned for Mule Day 2023 information

Only about 200 people call Calvary home, but on the first Saturday of November every year, Calvary's population swells to between 30,000 and 60,000 (not counting mules). 

The reason for this - Calvary Lions Club's Annual Mule Day Festival.  Proceeds of the festival go to Lions Sight programs and local charities.  

We celebrate Mule Day with a Mule Show to remember the mule and its significant contribution to the area's agriculture.

Come early to visit over 350 arts & crafts exhibitions, delicious food concessions, cane grinding, and syrup making. 

Help us make Mule Day memorable for the whole family. 

Come on out and join us for a full day of fun 

We look forward to seeing you!

Mule Day is held at 156 McCraville Rd

Cairo, GA 39828
