Once again, many of the South’s finest and most renowned turkey call makers will rendezvous at the lodge at Unicoi State Park on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 10-11, 2020 for the 5th annual Unicoi Call Makers Show.

Hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, and admission is free. Christmas may be over by early January, but turkey season is right around the corner, so do yourself a favor and plan to attend this one-of-kind-event.

Some 78 of the finest call makers across the eastern U.S. will be offering their hand-crafted turkey calls. These gifted artists attract collectors from all over the Southeast, making the show one of the best in the country.

According to show sponsors Mark Sharpe and Russell Beard, the 2020 show will also have two custom knife makers, a custom hunting bag and call pouch maker (very popular last year), three book authors and two leather workers.

The show will be held at Unicoi State Park & Lodge, a 1,050-acre state park just north of Helen. The park is home to 53-acre Unicoi Lake and Smith Creek.

What a great way to spend a January weekend in the mountains.
