One of the largest shows of its kind in the state, the four day event will draw antique farm equipment collectors from all over the United States.
Giant steel steam traction engines, old antique tractors, parades, and live musical entertainment are just a few of the things visitors can see during the show.
Besides displays of antique farm equipment, there will be demonstrations at the sawmill, shingle mill and blacksmith shop along with exhibits in Old Towne. Patterned after a 1920s rural village, Old Towne features places like Old Tyme Jail, Abbert & Sons Farm Machinery Repair Shop, a migrant farm camp and a hand built log cabin.
Not only does the show have plenty of displays to see, it has lots of activities. Daily parades, antique and lawn tractor pulls, a large outdoor flea market featuring crafts, antiques and items for the home, plenty of old fashioned music, consignment auction on Sunday, nightly entertainment, and valve cover racing.
One of the popular activities for young and old is the “South Haven Tractor Cruise.” Participants drive tractors of all makes and models into South Haven, cruise along the South Beach, and then stop downtown for an evening of dining and shopping.
Rustic camping sites are available on a first-come basis. Pets are allowed with exhibitors, campers and vendors only. Pets are restricted to owners' camp sites at all times. Personal transportation vehicles, such as golf carts, will be charged a registration fee.
