World-renowned evangelist Steve Wingfield will bring three days of fun, entertainment, live music and messages of hope to the Atlanta Motor Speedway as part of the Tailgate Family Festival, Oct. 5-7.

The entire weekend's events are free to the public and will include performances by legendary acts Randy Travis and Diamond Rio. Christian rap group Grits and the Christian alternative band Skillet will also perform during the three-day event. Travis will perform on Friday, Oct. 5 with both Grits and Skillet performing the following day. Diamond Rio will close out the show on Sunday, Oct. 7

As a highly recognized Christian speaker, author and leader, show host Wingfield has conducted over 50 city-wide festivals in the United States and overseas, preaching in person to tens of thousands of people in a career that spans 20 years of ministry.

"We are looking forward to coming to Atlanta Motor Speedway," Wingfield said. "We are planning on bringing good news and good music each night, a word of encouragement for today and a message of hope for tomorrow. It is going to be a wonderful event."

Camping will be available in several grounds for tents, pop-up campers and motorhomes. Both single day and weekend packages are available, but camping is limited so those interested are encouraged to act quickly. Camping inquiries should be directed to the festival offices.

The weekend will also feature craft vendors, sports tournaments, an extreme skateboarding showcase and a power team demonstration. Inflatable toys and a puppet show will be offered for children.
