2023 Georgia Junior National Livestock Show Motorized Vehicle Policy
In an effort to create the safest environment possible for all guests and personal property, the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter requires all non-ADA-compliant motorized vehicles to obtain and display a permit issued by GNFA. This includes golf carts, UTVS, ATVS, and scooters. Permits are required for both personal and rented equipment. Permits are not required for automobiles. GNFA-issued motorized vehicle permits will be available for purchase in advance by phone for $175 and on-site for $200 each. Permit holders that do not violate any of the operation requirements below will receive a refund of the cost of the golf cart permits less $25 at the time of move-out (No later than 12 pm on Sunday, February 26th). Permits must be presented and returned to the East gate security guard shack. If the permit is not returned by 12 pm on Sunday, February 26th the permit holder will be charged the full permit deposit. Permits must be purchased using a credit or debit card; no cash or checks will be accepted. All operators of permitted motorized vehicles must have a valid driver's license, be at least 16 years of age, and have proof of state minimum required liability insurance.
Any vehicle found operating without a permit, without insurance, unsafely, outside of the approved areas, or by an unlicensed driver will result in the confiscation of the permit from the motorized vehicle and the vehicle will be prohibited from being used the remainder of the show. If a motorized vehicle with a revoked permit is found in operation, the vehicle and the permit holder will be removed from GNFA property. All vehicle owners are liable for damage to personal and state property.
Motorized vehicle permits are included with the rental of golf carts rented through approved GNFA vendors, Mike's Golf Carts and Perry RV.
