F-100 Supernationals & Ford Family Reunion Reunite in Knoxville
F-100 Supernationals
More Info [PDF]
May 9, 2005 - Back in 1976, Pat Ford and his brother purchased a 1956 Ford pickup from behind a chicken coop in rural North Carolina. That old classic truck needed lots of work and polish, but Ford’s love affair with the F-100 model was underway.

Fast-forward to 2005 and what began as a hobby has grown into the largest F-100 truck show in the world, taking place this weekend in Knoxville. More than 1,500 owners and enthusiasts are expected to convene at Chilhowee Park May 12-14 for the 27th annual F-100 Supernationals & Ford Family Reunion.

F-100 Ford SupernationalsThe event has welcomed attendees from all 50 states as well as international guests from Canada, Japan, Holland, England, Sweden, Australia, South Africa and more. Some of this year’s truck owners participated in the "Super Tour," a cross-country trek that began in California and gathered truckers convoying all the way to Tennessee.

Activities during the weekend feature vendor exhibits, food and music plus giveaways and awards including the much-anticipated "Truck of the Year."

The event is open to the public Thursday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and tickets may be purchased at the Chilhowee Park gates. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and free for children ages 12 and under. A three-day pass may be purchased for $10.

The KTSC projects that the F-100 Supernationals & Ford Family Reunion will have a local economic impact of $2,070,000.
