Kitchens Road Old Time Family Festival returns

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Kitchens Road Old Time Family Festival returns Nov. 9 and 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to show people a setting “where everything old is new again.”

This festival is a step back in time with mules and antique tractors plowing, antique gasoline engines skipping and popping, blacksmiths forging their metals, artists and crafters displaying their creations and a group of old time cooks competing for the Collard Green crown.

The festival also features live country music, church choirs, local bands, a car, truck and tractor show and children activities to name just a sample of the many weekend events.

The festival organizers encourage a fun, clean environment for families to enjoy how country life used to be.

Kids 12 years old and under get in free. Adults pay $5.

That weekend, all roads lead to 370 A Kitchens Rd., the last road in Baldwin County on Highway 49 just past County Line Baptist Church in Haddock, Ga.

Go to for more information. Host Bobby Kitchens can be reached at 478-251-4993.

Portions from ticket sales will go to the Lions Club International of Milledgeville
