Springtime in the Smokies - 2019

For those of you who can't wait until our informal gathering in the fall, or can't make it then, Springtime in the Smokies, the annual gathering of European automobiles and motorcycles in Townsend, TN, will be held May 10-11 on the grounds of the Talley Ho Inn.

Join us in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains, as people from all over the southeast and beyond come together to show off their colorful paint, polished chrome and works in progress. Early registration is only $25 and includes the Friday night cookout (by April 15; $30 day of show).

Relax in the beauty of a Smoky Mountain spring. Come a day early or stay a day late and drive the Cades Cove loop, hike Laurel Falls, visit Sugarlands Visitor Center or wade in the Little River. OR, drive the newly completed Foothills Parkway, now offering 33 miles with some fantastic views. Here's a video of the opening ceremony, with some of the great views found on the new portion:

The car show is hosted by Blount British Cars and English Auto Society. Visit our websites for show details and registration information: [blountbritishcars.org] or englishautosociety.org. Proceeds, after expenses, are distributed to several local charities.
