Southern Middle Tennessee Events
We want you to know about these events before you book your vacation or trip to see the Amish. Some people will want to attend these events and some groups will want to avoid the crowds these events bring so we want both groups to be happy! Since these events happen yearly it is up to you to find out exactly what days they are happening since they are known by certain weekends. Like the 3rd Saturday of each month, or the second Tuesday of the week etcetera. We will try to list any website or facebook page where the event organizers keep you up to date on their event since an event may get rained out and rescheduled for another date without our knowledge. Look through the list below and see if there are any events you would like to pair with your Amish Adventure!
Since Ethridge is in Lawrence county, we will start here and branch out to cover the areas around Lawrence and Giles counties. There are so many to choose from so we narrowed the list to feature the larger and most popular events that are focused on the family friendly atmosphere and learning opportunities for children.
