The 18th Annual California Antique Farm Equipment Show, showcasing the agriculture industry's heritage, will be held April 15-17 at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, Calif. This year’s show highlights Holt, Best and Cat, as well as featuring some of the most one of a kind pieces on the west coast.

This show features over 900 exhibitors from throughout California and the United States, displaying their antique tractors, engines and other antique farm equipment. Each year the daily Antique Tractor and Truck Parade draws over 400 entries, and the parade has become one of the highlights of the show.

This family event features a Kiddie Korral and Pedal Pull Tractor Contest, an arts and crafts area, performances by local organizations from karate to dance, a very popular swap meet of tractor parts, a steak barbecue and concert on Saturday night and more.

The annual rib cook-off has also become a hot item during the antique show, as contestants vie for top honors and cash in beef and pork divisions.

“This event has met the original objective – to honor and learn from our past – but it’s also done much more,” noted volunteer Chairman Doug Peltzer. “The antique show is now great, affordable family entertainment, a chance to recognize local youth groups and a fun way to raise funds for the Antique Farm Equipment Museum.”
