Each June the BBMRA hosts the Annual Tallahassee Model Railroad Show and Sale. The show was cancelled for June 2020 due to the COVID 19 health crisis. Everyone was looking forward to the show this year and ended up being disappointed that it did not happen. This would have been the 29th Annual Show.
To honor our 30th Annual Show the BBMRA Board is planning a two show for June 2021. The show will again be located at the Leon County Fairgrounds and will be held on Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27, 2020. The times will be 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
