Events & Attractions Antique Trucks and Tractors
Antique Truck & Tractors
While the Canada’s Farm Progress Show’s main focus is to look to the future of agriculture, event organizers also recognize the importance of saluting the past as well. Spend some time at the Antique Tractors & Trucks showcase and find out why the farm machinery technology that existed decades ago is still enjoyed by many today!
Many of the machines have been restored to their original glory. Grab a cup of coffee and take a few minutes to chat with the owners, who will be more than happy to provide you with a truly inspiring story as to how that particular piece of equipment came to be. Visitors can view more than 100 pieces of equipment (including tractors and other farm machinery) on display in the Pasqua Prairie Harlton Buildings. The indoor display is open all three days of the show. Twice each day, the tractors are fired up in preparation for a trip around the show grounds in the Antique Tractor Parade. The parade route is often lined with young and old alike who enjoy the sights and sounds of these small but mighty machines of yesteryear. The parade takes place daily at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and follows the tram route.
In a true test of pure strength, check out the Antique Tractor Pull, taking place daily at 2:30 p.m. on Lot H. The tractors test their owners’ skill at balancing power, speed and pressure levels, which allow them to dig in and hold on!
