No admission is charged for this event.
Many different activities will be held throughout the day. You can also walk around and look at the different displays.
You will be able to see old-time steam threshing and sawing, cutting, plowing, bailing, chopping and silo filling. There will also be antique tractors, garden tractors, farm equipment and engines on display.
The kids can get involved by participating in the annual kids pedal pull around 12:30 p.m. They will use pedal tractors to pull a weight as far as they can. Awards will be given out to the top performers in the different weight classes.
Then stick around for a while to listen to music that will be provided from 3 p.m.-7 p.m.
There will be plenty of events going on throughout the day to watch and learn about some farming history.
You can treat yourself to food and refreshments, sponsored by the Campbellsport FFA Alumni.
