The charm and character of Madison County makes it the quintessential Southern Community. The Fourth of July Parade in Colbert, the Danielsville Fall Festival, the Comer Christmas Parade, and the Madison County Agriculture Fair are just a few of the events that uphold the rural flavor of the South. Being just minutes from Athens, Commerce and Elberton, Madison County has become a suburb for these fast growing cities.
