Hello Friends,

We hope to find you all doing well. The 2020 event season has been troubling times for all events and mass gatherings. We regretfully announce that all of our 2020 Thunder in the Smokies Rallies in Maggie Valley, NC are canceled due to COVID-19. Current State Guidelines are preventing us from holding all 2020 events.

Any vendor who paid for 2020 will receive a credit for the 2021 event. Credits will not be issued for 2022. Please fill out a new application. We sincerely thank you for all your support over the years. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 because we will be back bigger than ever!
