16th annual Independence day celebration

Thank you to everyone who made our 16th Annual Independence Day Celebration & Fly-In a literal blast! 

BSF Airpark’s neighbors celebrated with a fantastic meal by our friends Perry and Kristy Terry of Whole Hog BBQ, who once again delighted with a delicious pig roast for approximately 100 attendees. It was unforgettable. You can contact Whole Hog BBQ at (423) 215-3173 for your BBQ needs. Our friend Talon started the patriotic festivities by playing Taps on his trumpet. We were all amazed to have been able to witness BSFA resident and esteemed competitive aerobatic pilot, Britt, during her routine practice that could be viewed from our Lodge. The weather held out and allowed us to continue with our tradition of a dazzling fireworks display for the BSFA community.

8th annual oyster roast and FLY-IN

This event was one for the books! Thank you to everyone who made our 8th Annual Oyster Roast and Community Fly-In a success. We had 70 property owners, neighbors, and prospective property owners attend on a beautiful, sunny Saturday. Quentin Acres entertained us with guitar and ukulele tunes. Rex from The Shrimp Doc in Knoxville always provides us with delicious oysters from the James River in VA. Special thanks to Talon and AJ who tirelessly wash, prepare, steam, roast, and shuck hundreds of oysters for our enjoyment. These community events wouldn’t be the same without YOU – our community!
Until next time….

Annual Chili Cook-Off & Fly-In | Our hottest event of the year

A rainy day could not put out the flames on this hot event. Thank you to all who attended Big South Fork Airpark’s Annual Chili Cook-Off & Fly-In. It was an extraordinarily tight race. Our neighbors brought the heat submissions that were on fire, and in the end, there could only be only one…err two…um 4 (!!!!) winners. Congratulations to the winners who tied for 1st place – Kenny Lemieux & Scott Hallock – and to our 2nd place winners (yes tie also) Cheri, and AJ & Talon (our caterers!!).  We had a fantastic time as always and are already looking forward to our next Big South Fork Airpark event.

Another Big South Fork Airpark community event was enjoyed this past weekend! Thank you to all of our friends and neighbors who gathered for our annual Lowcountry Boil and Community Fly-In.  Approximately 80 BSF Airpark neighbors and guests gathered for a beautiful fall weekend event.  Together, we enjoyed beautiful weather, delectable crab, and, as always, fun and laughter.  We were even joined by visitors from as far away as Alaska and Australia!  Our airpark community is unlike any other, and that wouldn’t be possible without our friends and neighbors!

15th Annual INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION & PIG ROAST 

Thank you to BSF Airpark’s neighbors for celebrating another fantastic Independence Day with us! Our 15th Annual Independence Day Celebration was spectacular.  The day began with a trail ride to the river via ATV with BSF Airpark friends and neighbors. It was a fun and beautiful ride that will never get old.  Later in the day, we celebrated whole-hog style with Whole Hog BBQ. Perry and Kristy Terry pulled off a successful pig roast for approximately 100 attendees! It was delicious and tremendously appreciated. In fact, they received a standing ovation from our crowd! ,We ended the perfect day with a glorious 30-minute fireworks display, the longest in BSFA history; providing another fantastic event for the BSFA community.

FALL FOLIAGE AT BIG SOUTH FORK AIRPARK

OCTOBER & NOVEMBER 2021

Fall is a wonderful time to visit Big South Fork Airpark and East Tennessee.

 

Fall is a popular time at Big South Fork Airpark. The popularity of our area in Oneida, TN is due in large part to the stunning color changes to the foliage of the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area.
