2023 Porkchop BMX Ham Jam!

The 2023 Porkchop BMX HAM JAM!


WHEN: October 15th, 2023, 11AM-5PM (this is a RAIN OR SHINE event - but if rain is forecast BRING TENTS - as of 10-10-23 weather is looking good!)


WHERE: 1 Friendship Plaza, Cartersville, Georgia 30120



Cartersville has a lot going on and many great places to visit. Please consider coming for a few days and seeing what it has to offer. A good place to start planning your trip is this website: https://visitcartersvillega.org/


PARKING: See below. If in doubt, look for signs.


COST: Admission is FREE!  $5 per bike displayed, $20 per 10x10 swap meet spot (paid in person, the day of the show). Please note tents/popups are only allowed by those who have paid to display bikes or for a swap spot and all 4 corners must each be held down with a 40 lb weight (that's a total of 160lbs of ballast holding the tent down - no stakes are allowed). This is a city safety requirement. 



Please note: All bikes displayed will be part of the judging. Each bike owner will choose the category they want their bike(s) classed as. It's all for fun. Smile. Laugh. Enjoy. The only other way to display your bikes is to buy a $20 swap spot to set up in.
