Exhibitors from all over the southeast will convene in Dallas, North Carolina on October 12-14, 2018 for the annual 'crank-up' of antique steam and gasoline engines and tractors. One of the highlights of the engine show is the operational 1900 single-stand, Continental Cotton Gin and we will be ginning cotton all weekend long during the festival until we are all ginned out! In addition to the engine show, many activities are planned including a Kids County Fair, Heritage Arts Area, Handmade Craft vendors and Music. So mark your calendars and plan to join GAMTRA and Gaston County Parks & Recreation Department as we present Cotton Ginning Days. As always, the food is good and admission and parking are free.
NEW FOR 2018!!!!
On Friday night October 12th we will be showing the movie Hocus Pocus on the main event stage located beside craft barns A&B. The movie is FREE and will begin at sunset. Bring the family and come out and enjoy a nice fall evening.
