for the others, based on past years:
Hot Springs, NC: Trail Fest
April 24-25, 2009
April 23-24, 2010
April 22-23, 2011??
Damascus, VA: Trail Days
Always the weekend after Mother’s Day
May 15-17, 2009
May 14-16, 2010
May 13-15, 2011
Rutland, VT: Long Trail Festival
August 8, 2009
August 7, 2010
August 6, 2011??
Millinocket, ME: Trail’s End Festival
Sept. 11-13, 2009
Sept. 10-12, 2010
Sept. 9-11, 2011??
Maybe someone else has better information. You might
try calling ATC at (304) 535-6331 and ask for Laurie Potteiger.
