New York New York!! Well, a little bit west of the Big Apple, there’s some beautiful farm country near the Finger Lakes area. Four Two-Cylinder clubs hold this great show every other year where you can see a plethora of John Deere tractors, equipment and vendors in a nice setting on the New York Steam Engine Association grounds near Canandaigua. Officially titled the New York State Two Cylinder Expo Association-Expo XI and held July 11-13, 2013, this is pegged on their brochure as the world’s largest antique two cylinder John Deere show. This year’s feature was John Deere Model G.

This is a part of the group who meets you in the parking lot sending you in the right direction to park. The horses are always a fun distraction for kids young and old.

Lots of activities, demonstrations and seminars are included in the schedule. Tractor pulls are always a big favorite.
