Exhibitors from all over the southeast will convene in Dallas, North Carolina on October 12-13, 2012 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 which will be ginning cotton all weekend long during the festival until everyone is all ginned out!

Cotton Ginning Days is looking for Bluegrass, Country, and Folk artist to perform on Saturday Oct 13, 2012.

Monetary compensation is provided based on the experience and notoriety of the band.

Last yearÂ’s bands included Easy Pickins, Flowers Family Band, Cockman Family, Steven Mills band, and the Sugarloaf Mountain Boys.

This is a family friendly event.

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 the 25th Annual Cotton Ginning Days. As always, the food is good and admission and parking are free.

The event is located at 1303 Dallas-Cherryville Hwy, Dallas NC 28034 in Dallas Park.
