The only one I know for sure is Trail Days.  Here's my best guess 
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.
