This is our 30th anniversary here at E. T. A. E. A. We expect this to be one of our biggest and best shows, so pack your bags and come on down to East Tennessee for a great three-day show.

We're located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The weather here in June is great! Our display area is partially in the shade of giant pine trees, and in the open sun. We will have plenty of good food: East Tennessee ham, beans and cornbread, and the usual city food!

In the year 2000 we had approximately 100 exhibits and probably over 200 engines. This year, 2001, we're also going to have antique tractors. We'll have engines from Maytags to 70 HP Bessemers. We have 15 HP Patton Bros., 25 HP Acme, 15 HP Oil City Boiler Works, 20 HP Superior, 30 HP sideshaft Bessemer, 10 HP Acme, 15 HP J. P. Berry, Crosley Otto HP sideshaft, 15 HP Schleicher, Schumm & Company, plus that huge 70 HP Bessemer. All these engines will be running during the show. We will also have many rare smaller engines. We will have vendors ready to buy, sell, or trade.

We have over 25 acres of show ground in the beautiful East Tennessee mountains, which is part of the Cherokee National Forest. We have good camping areas with water and electricity on site, and shower and restroom facilities on the show grounds.

Our show dates will be Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, June 7, 8, and 9. On Saturday evening everyone will be invited to go to Doe River Gorge for a train ride through some of the most beautiful mountain country in the world.
