This is a community-inspired fall festival scheduled for the peak of hawk migration. The Bristol Bird Club leads tours to observe the migration. Activities at the Community Center include a beauty pageant, apple butter making, crafters, food vendors, and traditional bluegrass and gospel music all day long. The proceeds go toward the health clinic and those who need its services.

Directions: From I-81 take Exit 17 for 58 Alt West. Follow this into Abingdon and out of Abingdon. This road then combines with Hwy. 19. Follow Hwy. 19 for 8 miles. In the small town of Holston, turn left onto Mendota Rd. (Rt. 802) and follow it for 14 miles. The Community Center will be on the left.
