DALLAS, NC - Starting from October 8 to 10, Dallas will host the 34th annual fall festival Heritage & Harvest Days, an event that exhibits antique steam, gasoline engines, and tractors.

Heritage & Harvest Days are previously known as Cotton Ginning Days. The event was created by GAMTRA to celebrate the agricultural, mechanical, and textile heritage of Gaston County. After more than three decades, GAMTRA and Gaston County Parks and Recreational Department renamed the event to offer new things, while preserving the same activities that were included in Cotton Ginning Days.

The three days event will be held in the Gaston County Park in Dallas, Friday to Saturday starting from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. Apart from the main engine show, the event has a Kids County Fair, Heritage Arts Area, Handmade Craft vendors, and music. The kid's attractions area will cost around $1 to $3.

There is no admission fee to enter the event, and the parking is also free. If you come or park your car at Gaston College, you can use the free shuttle ride that will bring you to the venue.

The event is currently accepting food and craft vendors applications. Interested food or craft vendors can submit applications to the Gaston County Parks and Recreation Office either through email or directly at the office. To join on all three days, food vendors need to pay around $175. As for the craft vendors, the event will only accept handmade crafts and will cost around $40 for all three days.

More information about the Heritage & Harvest Days is available on the Gaston County government website.
