A beloved activity of the North Georiga Highlands Festival – great shopping. A carefully curated roster of art and craft vendors will line the paths of the park.

Bringing their hand-crafted goods, these artists from throughout the southeast have something for every interest – paintings, photography, pottery, glass, textiles, woodworking, jewelry, and more.

You’ll be sure to work up an appetite for seafood while shopping all the wonderful wares. 


There is no onsite park parking; however, look for the “event parking” signs for designated festival parking lots. Complimentary shuttle buses will pick-up in each of the designated festival parking lots and shuttles begin 30 minutes prior to the opening of each day and will run throughout festival hours.

Please do not park in non-festival designated lots during festival hours. We don’t want your vehicle to be towed!

The Festival encompasses the entire Park and the only way to get around inside the park is by walking. Due to insurance liability, the Festival Committee may not provide transportation to festival goers via golf carts.

If you have a government issued handicapped sticker/tag police officers will direct you to handicap parking area. Handicap parking is limited and is available on a first-come, first serve basis and fills-up quickly so plan accordingly.


Handicap parking for the festival will be adjacent to the festival with a  entrance gate.  There will also be a tent set up with chairs at the entrance to the parking area.  This parking area will be monitored as Handicap parking only.  Your vehicle must have a designated handicap license plate or handicap placard that hangs on the vehicles rear view mirror to gain access to this designated handicap parking area. Follow the handicap signs to gain access to the designated area. This area is equipped with 76 spots for handicap.


During the festival, items may be brought to the first aid booth (located in the front of the park office). Any items not retrieved during the festival will be given to the City Of Young Harris Mayors Office .
