Jacktown PA also has a good one, in May, as well as at their shows in July and October. Don't forget the snow show in January! if you are looking to buy engines, the Hudson Valley Auction, in Hudson, NY, is the place - second Saturday in May every year.

My favorite is The Conn Antique Machinery Assoc. show in Kent CT in these parts.
Remove the all rotten apples out of your basket of life and toss them in the trash where they belong.

The best meeting is always the one closest to your home, at least for us poor guys.

I would not be fixated on engine-specific shows, as any show that has to do with any old machinery could be worth checking out.

A few years ago I went to a rally and swap-meet for British motorcycles near my home and I was surprised to see just about anything and everything in the swap-meet including a Briggs 5s sitting there idling, a Whizzer-style gas-powered bicycle, old car parts and many other oddball mechanical and antique items.

I like old engines and mowers, but if I do not find something locally and for pocket-change then it usually is not going to happen. What makes a hobby enjoyable for me is that it does not involve any large investments in traveling or money, and when it reaches that point it is time to find another hobby.
