Anyone know of any antique tractor, machinery, and engine shows comming up in the N.W. Ga. or N.E. ALA. area? Also any old time craft demonstrations or shows like Blacksmithing, chair canning and etc.? Anyone have any links to such events?
Thanks for your time.

One used to be held on Sand Mountain, in NE Ala, at or near Rainsville. And as I recall it was in the Nov-Early Dec timeframe. I remember seeing it listed in the HSM magazine a few years ago, but haven't seen any mention of it recently (last 2 or 3 years).

There's one held at Athens Ala in early-mid August each year. I think it was weekend of 12 Aug this year. I missed it tho.

There's also one at Brooks High School, on US hiway 72 at Killen Ala (east of Florence). It usually precedes the Athens show by a few weeks.

This might be a bit far for you to go, but there is an antique tractor and engine show in Eagleville, TN this weekend (Sept 8-10). Small but good show. I plan to go Saturday morning.
