The time is right, and the stage is set. It’s time to get
out that old tractor or engine and bring it on in to Pocono
Mountain Tractor and Antique Machinery Association’s Blue Grass
and Blue Smoke Spring Festival! Yes, it’s time to make good on
all those old promises. You know the ones. The ones you made last
year about how you were going to take your old antique in and show
them what you’ve got!

We started off with a brand new club last year and at the end of
the year we boasted a membership of over 125 members. At our last
show we had over 70 gas engines on display and close to 80
tractors! We are a family oriented bunch. We also try to keep the
prices down so a family can still afford to come and have a good

Yes, we are still going to have all the old stuff you have come
to know and love, like the free hayrides, garden tractor pulls on
Saturday, farm tractor pulls on Sunday, and hit and miss engines
popping up all over the place! You’ll remember the sweet smell
of good food and funnel cakes cooked to perfection. Enjoy the
kiddie tractor pulls, flea market, arts and crafts, and did I
mention thrashing? Old Dave would never forgive me if I forgot to
mention thrashing. All of this is backed by the best bluegrass
bands we’ve ever heard. The bands will be playing their hearts
out starting on Friday evening, Saturday all day, and Sunday, when
we’ll start off with gospel music, then back to good old
bluegrass in the afternoon.

The place is easy to find. We are located in Newfoundland,
Pennsylvania, at the G. D. S. Fairgrounds in the heart of the
beautiful Pocono Mountains. So, mark your calendar for June 27th,
28th and 29th.
