Fall S Fest

The annual Fall S Fest is a gathering of American Flyer, hi-rail, scale, and narrow-gauge modelers. It is held for several days, and offers how-to clinics, contests, vendors, local tours, etc. The event is hosted by one of three rotating clubs, namely the Badgerland S Gaugers, the Chicagoland Association of S Gaugers, and the State-Line S Gaugers.

Even though the NASG is not directly involved with Fall S Fests, we still wanted to have a page dedicated to this annual meeting, sharing what information we have collected from past Fall S Fests, what is coming up this year, and which ones are already planned for future years. If you want to stay up on the latest related to Fall S Fests, bookmark this page.
