Prater's Mill Country Fair Parking & Directions

Follow the signs, then our Traffic Control folks

All Parking at Prater’s Mill is free. The Prater’s Mill Traffic Control will direct you off the road and into our parking lots where the Boy Scouts will take over and get you in a space. The Boy Scouts will help navigate the lots and direct you back out to go home. You may have many questions, please do not stop to ask. We are parking you in the closest available lot in the closest space. Stopping the process only causes traffic jams.  You may not understand what we are doing. We often park vehicles nose to tail but we leave driveways so everyone can either pull or back out to leave with out obstruction.  

Our parking lots are hayfields, so this is not a trip to the mall.  You may think where you want to go is a good spot, it may be mud or sink hole or worse.  We have roped off driveways and bus stops to give the lot some structure.  Free shuttle buses run constantly from the fair grounds to designated points in each parking lot. Each bus stop has its own color. Remember the color to get back to the same stop. Buses cannot drop off or pick up outside of these designated areas for safety reasons.

Handicapped? Reserved handicap parking is next to the blue bus stop where wheel chair lift shuttles will deliver you to the fair grounds. Display permit for faster, accurate direction. 

RVs and buses park in a special lot up on the hill.

Prater's Mill Friends


Prater’s Mill Historic Site is owned by the people of Whitfield County but operated and maintained by the Prater’s Mill Foundation. As a non-profit volunteer group, the foundation relies heavily on the revenue from the annual Country Fair, donations and revenue from reservations of the grounds. The Country Fair is our primary fundraising event. All donations and proceeds from the fair go back into site maintenance and day to day operations. ▫️ 🔶 ▫️ Prater’s Mill is more than just a mill. In return for your efforts you can meet new friends, have fun and sustain the history of your community. You can help by donating not only money, but your time and expertise. We need volunteers to staff our office, help us maintain the grounds and even help produce the country fair fundraising event. This just names a few ways we could use your help! ▫️ 🔶 ▫️ The mission of the foundation is to protect, preserve and present the heritage of the Prater’s Mill Historic Site for future generations. ℹ️ For more information on the foundation, select links under the "ABOUT" menu or call ☎️ 706-694-MILL.
