  • SCHEDULED EVENT: Metal Dash Weekend 2021: Sep 17-19

    I've started a new 2021 thread as the event is only 6ish weeks away. Based on the website, it's the usual route of events.


    Metal Dash Weekend Info:

    Date: September 17-19 2021

    After having to cancel in 2020, Metal Dash Weekend is on for 2021!

    Land Rover enthusiast Don Flye hosts the annual Metal Dash Weekend and Land Rover swap meet each fall at his farm in Petersham, Massachusetts. Petersham is located in the scenic New England North Quabbin Woods region. All Land Rover enthusiasts are welcome. The event offers free on site camping, swap meet, vehicle displays, tech sessions, off road adventures, driving course, good people and good times for all. There is hiking right on the property and a pond for water adventures like fishing and canoeing.

    The annual event is held the weekend after British Invasion weekend in Stowe, Vermont, so for 2021 the dates are September 17-19.

        I’d love to attend, especially after the success of the vineyard series. Just need to convince my wife this is the perfect way to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

                    I count as being near coastal NH. Making a pitstop in Rutland (MA) and heading to Don's from there. Depending on schedules we could convoy.
