The Tennessee Tech Agritourism Association is gearing up to host the annual Tennessee Tech University Fall Festival and Antique Engine and Tractor Show on Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Hyder-Burks Agricultural Pavilion.

The free event will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Hyder-Burks Pavilion is located at 2390 Gainesboro Grade.

Students and faculty are invited to bring their families out to experience fall activities, to play games and to pick out a free pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. TTU Agriculture Department faculty will be providing learning stations on a variety of topics from sorghum processing to beekeeping.

Guests may also see the antique engine and tractor exhibits provided by the Middle Tennessee Antique Engine and Tractor Association.  The Tractor Association looks forward to displaying the tractor that formerly belonged to World War I hero, Sergeant Alvin C. York.

"Free, family fun at the Fall Festival makes for a fine Saturday!" Kyle Davis, Vice President of the TTU Agritourism Association, said.

The TTU Agritourism Association seeks to promote agritourism - any activity that brings visitors out to a farm or agricultural venue for purposes such as education, business, or a tourism experience. The organization is mostly composed of agriculture majors, but students involved in all areas of study are welcome to join. The club typically meets on the third Thursday of every month during dead hour.
