Go to the web page and click on tables then go to the dropdown "tailgating". You can get in 6:00am and park at a flea market spot. The main gate doesn't open until 8:00am. Give this guy a call: CONTACT: John Talipsky N3ACK 770-668-4474 or [email protected]
If you click on "location" and then "facilities" there is a photo of the hamfest area and on the right side of the photo you see a lake and all the RV parking sites to give an idea of just how close the campground is. Building A & B are for indoor vendors, if it looks like rain you may want to be close to the Arena where they have the horsy events. This park is where they have the North Georgia State Fair. There is a roller coaster off of the area at the bottom of the photo and I think a couple other permanent rides. I just read the directions and they must be a couple years old. Windy Hill does not dead end at Austell Road any more. Several years ago they made a new extension and it now goes through to Powder Springs Road (and on west) where you can turn right on Powder Springs Road about a 1/2 mile to a right on Callaway Road to the park or you can turn left on Austell Road and then a right on Callaway road and come to the park from the south.
Flea market vendors come in a different gate than the rest of the crowd. Flea market costs $10 for a spot. Beside the Lawrenceville hamfest, 1st weekend in November, it's the only big one in the area.
I believe Newnan had their first hamfest last year, can't remember when it was though. Our club has a tailgate only hamfest the 3rd Saturday in September which is totally free at Earl Duncan county park just north of Dallas. We've had it for nearly 30 years now. We now tout entertainment. One of the members plays a banjo and is part of a Bluegrass combo and they have a little jam at the hamfest.
