Cumming is rich in Native American lore and most of its eastern border lies on the shores of Lake Lanier, which offers a habitat to the endangered Southern Bald Eagle and Peregrine Falcon. Booming residential development has been accommodated without harming its many natural resources and attractions. The Cumming Fairgrounds provide many events for Cumming’s residents, including the annual County Fair, the IPRA World Championship Rodeo, a weekly Farmer’s Market, an Indian Festival, an annual Steam and Gas Engine Expo, yard sales, and a July 4th Celebration. The Cumming Fairgrounds also host events such as Relay for Life, Christmas in Cumming Arts & Crafts Show, Business Picnics, Laps for Life, and the Taste of Forsyth.
