RV City Rolling into Georgia in March

Members of the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) will head to Georgia in mid-March for a four-day event – a small city on wheels will take shape as the owners of more than 2,500 RVs converge on the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter, March 15-18. FMCA’s 97th International Convention and RV Expo has been dubbed “Southern Charm” in honor of the host area.

Organizers have scheduled more than 100 educational sessions aimed at helping RV owners glean more enjoyment from their homes on wheels. Various RV experts will conduct seminars during the event. Topics range from tire maintenance, technology, and safe driving to microwave-convection cooking and RV trips to Alaska.

Attendees also will be able to tour RVs of all types, sizes, and price ranges as part of the RV showcase that will take place during the event.

Southern humorist and speaker Jeanne Robertson will perform at the event. The 6-foot-2-inch former Miss North Carolina, and Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant, is as funny as she is statuesque. Texas native Thomas Michael Riley will share his original country music, and two-time Grammy-nominated Big Mike and the Booty Papas from Macon will perform blues, contemporary R&B, country, and classic rock. The Grapevine, a 10-piece band, will play music from the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s. And on another night, the Macon Pops will present their symphonic take on music from the 1960s through the 2010s.

For those who want to view only the RV displays and the supplier and component exhibits, admission costs $10 per day or $25 for a family of three or more; children 12 and under are admitted free with an accompanying adult. Individuals with an active military ID are admitted free as well. Those who would like to take in the exhibits and also attend seminars and entertainment may purchase a Daily Passport, which is available for $50 per person. Free public parking will be available at the North Entrance of the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter off Larry Walker Parkway.
