Our Club was started by a group of antique tractor enthusiasts over a cup
of coffee at the local Tim Hortons, back in 2004. Our first show was on the Civic long weekend in August of 2005, where we featured Allis Chalmers tractors and equipment. Every year since, we have featured a different make of tractor.
Our show is a great place to meet with other antique farm equipment enthusiasts and view their collections, to educate yourself or your children about our farming heritage, to enjoy some country music and some down home cooking and lots more. Our show has grown significantly, with more exhibitors, vendors, spectators, demonstrations and events every year.
Once again we are planning some new attractions, so be sure to check back to our website for more information about those.
For our 13th Annual Show, our feature will be INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER TRACTORS, EQUIPMENT AND GAS ENGINES. If you or someone you know has a tractor or piece of equipment or even a whole collection, whether restored or not, we welcome you to bring it out and show it off. We would love to have you join us!
Memberships are $10.00/yr. and are available at the registration office at
the show August 5th & 6th, 2017. New members are always welcome!
Throughout the year, we plan some special events like our:
~ Annual Tractor Drive
~ Annual Plow Day (weather and soil conditions permitting)
~ Participation in Local Parades and Community Events
~ Annual Pot Luck Supper (members, sponsors and exhibitors are
welcome to join us at our at our annual pot luck at Emmanuel
Congregational Church in Ridgetown. If you have something to bring
along for our door prize table, it would be greatly appreciated!)
Our show booklet, filled with show information, antique tractor and equipment stories, and pictures of our show, goes out to all exhibitors and is made available to all spectators who attend our show. If you have a story about a special tractor or collection you would like us to include or if you would like to advertise your farm or business in our booklet, please contact us before March 15, 2017.
