We have had this event on our calendar for several years but something always came up to prevent us from attending. This year we were all set to take a car and go but again our plans had to change. We did make it but we were unable to take a car. The 2014 Dawsonville GA Moonshine Festival is a must if you like old cars, moonshine, race cars, moonshine, crafts, and moonshine!
The Festival runs for several days but Saturday is the big day. We got a late start and traffic was terrible. It took us three time as long to get there on Saturday as it did on Sunday morning. The crowd on Saturday was also huge but Sunday was very nice. Our first priority was to see some old race cars and old moonshine runners. We were not disappointed with plenty of both on hand. The town square was surrounded by more 40 Fords than you have ever likely seen in one place at one time.
If your wife is into crafts there were blocks and blocks of cool craft vendors for her to look through while you check out all the cars or the swap meet. If you kept a sharp eye open there were also some old drivers around with plenty of old dirt track and drag strip cars everywhere.
One of our favorite things was meeting Awesome Bill (Elliott) from Dawsonville. We even got a jug of his moonshine with his autograph and another autograph on our old open face race helmet with other notable Nascar drivers ‘ signatures.
Next year we will return with one of our cars and spend the entire three days of the event having a lot of good old down south fun! Ya’ll come, ya hear.
