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 time.

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.
