- CAR BOOT SALE!
Our introduction of this new event last year was so successful we are bringing it back this year. It’s the British version of a yard sale, with everyone selling stuff from the back of their car or truck. Your vehicle does not have to be British born! If it has a “boot” (that’s what we Brits call the trunk of a car) it qualifies. The attendance at last year’s Car Fayre was close to 15,000 people, so pack your car or truck with anything you think might sell. It’s only $15 per vehicle to participate and you must pre-register. While you shouldn’t expect to get rich, you’ll have a lot of fun turning your used stuff into someone else’s new treasure. Last year’s sellers all reported worthwhile results. Check here for vendor deadlines, details, and to register.
- If you need a cozy place to stay, we recommend the Atlanta Marriott Peachtree Corners located a short 2 miles from downtown Norcross. Click here for details and booking information.
- Each year we select and support a charity, and this year we are again proud to support the Amanda Riley Foundation. Last year with generous donations from our on-line registrants and sale of raffle tickets at the Car Fayre we were able to send $2000 to the Foundation. Barbara and Steve Riley founded the organization in memory of their daughter, Amanda, who was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 16. She bravely fought for her life for 405 days before passing in 2010. The Foundation works with children and families in the Atlanta area while they are in the midst of their battle with cancer. For more information on the Foundation please visit the Amanda Riley Foundation website. We feel sure you will agree with us that this is a charity very deserving of our support. Please help us increase our donation this year by adding a few extra dollars to your pre-registration form or purchasing a raffle ticket at the Car Fayre. Every penny donated helps a child in the Atlanta area with cancer.
- Our featured marque this year is Rolls Royce
- Our arrival and registration desk opens at 8:30 a.m. We try to keep the same marques together in one designated area, so your pre-registration and early arrival helps. However, we can only set aside a specific area, not an assigned space. We work very hard at this on the day!

EXCITING NEW ADDITION FOR 2016
- The Sunbeam Tiger and Sunbeam Alpine East groups have chosen to hold their annual combined United 35th meeting and show this year in Georgia (Norcross) and are joining us for our Car Fayre on Saturday, September 10th. All of the Sunbeams will be parked in the area around Thrasher Park, across the railroad tracks. While they will have their own schedule of events and awards, etc. our Car Fayre visitors are encouraged and welcomed to hop over the tracks and view a fantastic display of Sunbeams.
